This is a small English, Georgian, glass oil lamp dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1760. A similar example can be seen in Keith Kelsall's book "Glass in 18th Century England: The Open-Flame Lamp" in plate Q60. The lamp is in excellent condition for its age. It shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with over 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot. The lamp has a double ogee-shaped bowl with an everted rim measuring 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in diameter at its widest point. The bowl sits on a short piece of plain stem that leads to a conical, folded foot that measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter. The lamp is 8.8 cm (3.5 inches) in height. There is a small unburst bubble in the metal of the bowl. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration. It has a small collector's sticker on the bottom of the foot. It is made from English lead glass weighing in at 158 g. (~ 5 1/2 oz.).
