A Regency Sinumbra

Circa 1820

This lamp exemplifies the type of object that would have been imported in the Classical period for homes in America. The retailer’s tag on the burner tube reads: IMPORTED BY / P. MORTON / NEW YORK. Retailers could offer their clients the convenience of shopping in one place with objects from England, Asia, and Europe. Offered in a beautiful two-tone gilt-lacquered finish, the slender standard is supported on a square base raised on cast flattened bun feet.

Bronze, brass, tin, and glass
Height: 30 ½”
