    Hi there, I have a beautiful handmade piece but I am not sure what it is or who has made it.
    It has a iridescent layer on the outside and a deep ink blue colour when held in the light. It reminds me of the night sky
    It has a top which is made of pottery and brass and has a cotton wick
    I am hoping someone may be able to tell me what it is used for and who the artist is. Cheers

      looks like an oil lantern and a pretty one too .

      Thank you Lovely Pat, yes that makes sense that it is an oil lamp.

      That is a beautiful piece of glass - that iridescence is not easy to do.
      I hope one of the US based glassies here can help with ID.

      Thank you racer4four, I found this lovely piece at yard sale and I think it is gorgeous too. I have been searching sites and have found something similar made by someone called Stephen Morris but not sure as yet if is one of his creations.
