    I found this fairy lamp dome on my birthday in April 2018...& have recently acquired a base of the correct size to complete it.
    Collecting fairy lamps tends to be a long game...the majority of mine have been found as orphan parts - mostly domes, sometimes bases. Finding spare parts of the right shape & size can be a challenge, but immensely satisfying when a correct match is achieved.
    I still have numerous fairy lamp parts in need of matching pieces, & thus, the search continues...
    Both dome & base were made in England, circa 1880s.

      These lamps would look so gorgeous with a candle scattered through your garden. Magical.

      Thanks so much, Peggy - yes, it's satisfying indeed to make up fairy lamps from spare parts, & well worth the effort...which is rather fun "effort" anyway!

      Many thanks, Patricia! They're a match made in heaven, aren't they?
