Newbie help please, what is this???

Post by Lithiumsmummy on Wed Feb 18, 2015 2:06 am



I really hope I have done this correctly :0
I am not a collector, I know nothing about fairy lamps, except they are gorgeous. I came across this at auction with a whole lot of Victorian oil lamp chimneys & shades. I don't know what it is, apart from pink & white glass. I'm guessing it may be part of a fairy lamp?? I don't need to know anything technical as I wouldn't understand it anyway - please in baby language, if anyone can tell me what this is, I would be really grateful. It has 4 little cut out bits around the base that clearly fit into something??
Thanks
Fran

Hi Fran, welcome to the Forum.

Your shade is indeed part of a fairy lamp.  I would have had a matching saucer-like base similar to the one shown below.  The notches in the rim are to let air in so that the candle will burn.  Nice find.
