An Overlay Glass Lamp

Sandwich, Massachusetts
Circa 1860
Boston and Sandwich Glass Company

This beautiful sapphire cut-to-clear lamp was manufactured in this larger size at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company. The font and standard are beautifully shaped and cut. All of the brass parts are presented in a gilt-lacquered finish.  Unique for this lamp is the slate double-stepped base painted to appear as black marble.
