Early 19th Century Sandwich Glass Whale Oil Lamp

Early 19th Century Sandwich Glass Whale Oil Lamp


This is a free-blown and pressed glass whale oil lamp from the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company of Sandwich, Massachusetts, c. 1830. As a teenager I was able to visit the old Sandwich Glass Company Museum and found the styles, colors, and designs of their different types of lamps to be amazing. This is a 'simple'colorless glass lamp that has a free-blown top (with its original double burner) and a pressed glass base. A Sandwich glass lamp should be in very early lighting collection as it shows the wonderful workmanship of blown glass at an affordable price.

It is 8.5" tall x 4" wide.

My Living Room 2018

My tastes in furniture and antiques are taking me earlier into our past and my living room right now my favorite room in my home. That grain painted wardrobe that you can see in this picture will soon be replaced by an 18th century highboy that I fell in love with while up in New England a few months ago.
