    I have had this lamp for quite some time (it was a gift from a family member) and never paid much attention to it (although I often use it), until I saw of CW member IMASapp’s fairy lamp posts and thought “That’s what it is!”. My lamp is 11.5 cm tall and it has a diamond-shaped pattern. It is very likely to be a later reproduction of a Samuel Clarke design.

    Here is one of IMASapp's posts: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/141757-fairy-lamp--clarke-richly-cut

      Jensen,

      Your lamp appears to be a modern reproduction of Clarke's Diamond Point design. I have seen them in several colors in both fairy and pyramid size. It has been reported to me that they are produced in Hong Kong, but I have no direct evidence of that.

      I suspected that it might be of later date - thanks for the info, IMASapp!

      Thank you for the link. There is probably more information in the website than I have days left. It will be interesting to go through the collection.
