I liked this fairy lamp very much at first sight even though I realised it might not be that old. However I did find that Linda McMullen is included on a list of Fenton artists/painters published by a Fenton Club. I assumed that having the artist's name on the dome meant the whole was Fenton!
I bought it but then when I searched some more I could only find the dome on a matching custard glass base. There is no identifying mark on the blue base.
I'd be very pleased if anyone could tell me whether the blue base is Fenton or something else altogether.
The saucer was made in a two part mould. The line which reveals where the two parts joined runs round the scalloped rim. The moulding is high quality and the dome is a snug fit in the base.
I have no view as to whether the base is Fenton or not beyond thinking that if Fenton it would have been marked/stamped.
