Found on my birthday, this Victorian fairy lamp dome is made from pale blue glass with a pulled loop pattern in white. The pattern is referred to as "Nailsea" after early 19th C glassware with similar pulled loop designs made in the town of that name. This piece is most likely a product of one of the major Stourbridge manufacturers such as Thomas Webb & Sons or Stevens & Williams.
This dome measures 9 cm tall, 9.3 cm across the base, & the hole at the top is 3 cm wide. It has a smooth satin finish & requires an appropriately sized candle cup to complete it. The cups are hard to find, so I'll probably be searching for a while, but who could pass up a fairy lamp dome for $10, on their birthday? :-)
