Colored Glass Finger LampBy Mark Chervenka
Colored Glass Finger Lamp
This new finger lamp was made by Fenton for a Tennessee lamp parts company. It has a #1 solid brass collar, a transparent light blue body and an applied clear glass handle. The body is 3 5/8″ diameter; 3 1/2″ to top of collar. Unlike the majority of reproduction oil lamps, the collar on this piece is plastered to the body. Collars on most foreign made oil lamp repros are simply glued.
This piece can be identified by a 14 petal image in the bottom of the base. A sales brochure promoting the lamp described it as a limited edition, but no production quantities were mentioned. Price was $36.50 each. It is identical to a similar lamp produced with a cranberry body in 1993.
