Fairy Lamp ID

Hi there

I have 3 night light holders that I believe may be Victorian Fairy Lamps. Could anyone please confirm?
Many thanks in advance! Annette Smile

Confirm?

Without holding the lamp, it is always difficult to be sure of anything, but from looking at the base, it does not look to be embossed with the Fairy or with the Clarke trademark text on the inside. With the red color base I would say that this lamp was produced fairly recently, and possibly by Mosser. It is hard to tell for sure without seeing the thickness of the shade, the base of the shade out of the cup and how the top surface is finished. If it is a Mosser lamp, they can be found on occasion for around $25.00.

Thank you so much for your quick response. The lamps do not have any markings to the base, so will pursue the Mosser ID. Smile

Thora,

The diamond point fairy lamps are perhaps the most confusing since they are havily reproduced. Perhaps the following chart will help you figure out what you have.

Good Morning!

Thank you again for this info - I suspect the lamps are repros and having looked at the examples you sent, they are not the same. It has been very interesting to compare nonetheless. Your help has been much appreciated Very Happy
Best regards
