Antique, first half of the 19th century, circa late 1820's/early 1830's. American in origin, most likely made by the Boston & Sandwich Glass Co. Of Sandwich, Massachusetts, founded in 1826 and closed in 1888. The company was one of the earliest to produce pressed glass. The name of Lacemaker's lamps comes from the fact that they are very similar in form, and were apparently used as well for the same purpose, as Lacemaker's lights - a type of blown glass globe help up to the height of a candle - filled with water, it would disperse the light around the room, allowing multiple lacemakers to work in the same place during the nights.PLEASE SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS! 10.8" tall, 5" base diameter (across).
