English 18th century lacemaker’s focus lamp: A RARE and beautifully simple, globular blown glass flask, with an applied flared pedestal base that is similar in form to a chemist’s apothecary flask. Similar examples of lacemaker’s lamps were also produced in France. The flask would have been filled with water and illuminated from behind with candlelight, amplifying the light. It has a splendid lop-sided organic form, on account of the body positioned slightly off-center relative to the base. There is a broad flat flared lip, a rough pontil scar on the foot, and the rim of the footed-base is folded in. Striations and air bubbles in the glass are visible. There is a degree of clouding to the once clear glass, as shown. This is to be expected and acceptable wear. Additionally, there are minor surface scratches in the glass. There are no chips.

Size: height is 12 ¼”. Base diameter is 5 ½”.
