This is a sweet two piece Victorian floriform fairy lamp. The cranberry form has a tulip shape with three rows of applied colourless petals. The shade has an etched signature, Clarke's Fairy Pyramid. The base is your typical Clarke's Fairy Lamp pressed glass base. I'm sure there is a fancier base to compliment. I've been entertaining the thought it is possible this floriform shade and other fairy lamp floriform shades are Bohemian and were commissioned by Clarke's.
