There have been several threads lately related to "life lights, vases, fairy lamps, etc" produced by various companies. Some of these styles are specially designed for a candle lamp, often referred to as fairy lamps. I thought I would show a few examples to illustrate the range of glass types and designs.
The key to whether or not it can be used as a fairy lamp stand depends on the size and shape of the opening. A pyramid-size will need a 2" round opening and a fairy-size will need a 3" round opening. The shade and lamp cup will typically match the stand in glass type and color. (approximate diameters)
The examples are from my personal or family collection, others from unknown private collections. Several are illustrated in Hosch catalog pages. None are documented Clarke commissioned designs.
