    This fairy lamp (to use the term loosely) was registered by the Blumberg Compamy in 1886. Blumberg was an early competitor to Samuel Clarke.

    This lamp is referred to as a Sombrero type for apparent reasons. It originally had a flat fluted saucer with an intrigal candle cup. The glass is "clear stamped" with the Blumberg diamond logo and the words - Blumberg Co. Limited.

    Clarke did not commission this lamp, but he may have commissioned the more typical dome shape fairy lamp shown on a clear Clarke lamp cup.

    The Registered design was apparently related to the shape rather than to the glass type. As you can see from the group photo, this lamp came in several glass types. In a couple of the examples, you can see the fluted saucer like base that allows for air to feed The candle. Without the base, the candle is likely not able to burn.

    If anyone has any information on the Blumberg Co, I would like to hear from you.

    This lamp is only about 6" tall.
