PONTILED WHALE OIL LAMP - LIGHT BULB FORMED FONT

ITEM 2105. WHALE OIL LAMP, colorless, square, two tiered pressed glass base with a wide ringed knopf and a blown light bulb form font, pontil scar, 8"H, tooled mouth, about mint (numerous flat base edge flakes and typical mold roughness). American, 1825-1840.

This well-crafted fluid lamp is pleasingly formed and beautifully constructed. The pressed glass base does exhibit some roughness and a milky stream of bubbles but these conditions are common to lamps of this type and the piece remains a fine example of early Nineteenth century lighting.
