Fairy Lamp Epergne using a peg candle dish

Post by justonslamps on Mon Apr 14, 2008 3:28 am

Is there any documentation of a fairy lamp epgerne that uses the peg type candle dish rather than the flat dish that is found in the ring type metal framework? There are of couse many examples of a single candle stick using a pegged candle dish, but I have not seen a multi-arm candelabra using these. I would love to hear comments on this. John

If I usderstand you correctly, Clarke Models 71-73 use a cup like you describe. The matching lamp cup has a clear class "knob" on the bottom. It is not really a "peg" but a "decoration". Here is the Clarke catalog ad:



In addition, R-722 uses the same lamp cup design:



I don't have a fancy epergne but, I do have several cups of various colors. I use them in Cricklite stands when I am able to come up with a pair.

Epergne with peg candle dish

Post by justonslamps on Mon Apr 14, 2008 11:01 am

Thanks for the input and the pictures. Because I don't have a Cricklite stand as you pictured nor a fancy epergne standard, I may just have to make up my own creation. I have several of the Fostoria peg candle dishes and thought that I would look for a suitable candelabra and use these. I have several Fenton Burmese fairy lamp size shades that I would use. I am sure that there are several readers out there who are willing to shoot me at sun-down for even thinking of such an idea!!!!!!! Thanks . John

I have two lamps that use multipule peg cups. When I have a chance tonight, I will post one of then. I have not had either of these photographed and added to the list of undocumented lamps as they are not as complete as I would like. One is missing all the matching shades (of course they are the hardest color to come by). Of course anyone who is willing to give up any shades would be given a place of honor in my mind Laughing

Fairy lamp epergne with peg candle dishes

Good news. I need not be shot at sun down!! I just reviewed the Undocumented Fairy Lamps Gallery and U-80 is exactly what I had in mind. Now to find just that perfect base for my idea will be a challenge. I would be interested in seeing the fariy lamp epergne that cadking mentioned that he had. Thanks. John

The lamp I am presenting here has not been photographed before as I said since I have been looking for five appropriate green glass fairy-size domes similar to R-61 or Emeralite-type as shown on a similar lamp as R-753. For photo purposes, I have used five clear domes marked “Cricklite”. This lamp has the same design as R-753 with the crystal swirl stem which has a green threaded highlight twisting with the pattern. This lamp also has crystal bead chains from below the top under a crystal cover to the base of each cup. This lamp is 19” tall to the top cup rim and 11” square .

I have another, but that will wait until I have the shades I need. - Jim, I guess this one can go in the pages of "Undocumented Fairy Lamps".
