RARE New england glass co. lamp - blown, molded font and fancy stepped base


ITEM 5318. WHALE OIL LAMP, clear flint glass, blown-molded font attached with a four-ringed wafer to a stepped octagonal pressed base, pontil scar, 8"H, tooled mouth, a mint lamp with some base edge roughness as is typical of the pressing process. American, probably blown at the New England Glass Company, Cambridge, MA, C. 1850, extremely rare.

This unusual lamp is a glassmaker's tour de force, exhibiting a seamless transition between blown and pressed elements. Our New England Glass Company attribution is supported by known products of this company with the same pressed base.
