This is a Fenton hurricane lamp base, a beautiful piece of white milk glass, it has a poured look. The finger loop holder was hand applied. The candle holder is a circle with a cupped rim that bells in. The actual candle holding segment is surrounded by six embossed ridge pieces. This is lovely on its own, but is it intended to have a hobnail sconce to complete the hurrican lamp. I have only seen it with the hobnail sconce, but it is possible that the same base also goes with other Fenton sconce patterns. The lamp is 5 1/4" wide and 2" tall to the top of the handle.
