This is the clear version of the Crown Crystal Glass Six Star finger lamp. Surprisingly, this is the first clear one we have had. In the past we have had the green uranium glass version of this lamp and a citrine All Over Stars finger lamp but not a clear glass one. Unlike the other two though, this one no longer has its original Blixten burner. These little lamps have an applied handle so they can be easily carried from room to room. Ideal for when going to bed.
Here we have a pair of clear glass Australian Late Petal kerosene lamps. The lamps were made by Crown Crystal Glass Co. in Sydney and were in constant production for many years between the wars. The glass is thick and the lamps are quite heavy compared to lamps made prior to World War I. They are certainly very stable and I think they would have been almost indestructible. Perhaps that is why so many of them are still around now.
We are unsure of the age of this sweet amethyst glass finger oil lamp. It appears to be hand blown as there are no mould lines and it has many of the attributes of an antique glass lamp. That said though, the pontil mark is so smooth it is almost non-existent and there are no signs of any shelf wear. There again, the collar has developed a patina that generally only comes with age. The lamp could have been made recently or it could have been made in the 1940s but hardly used.

This green glass finger lamp is a bit of a mystery. We found it in a reference book that suggested it was German or Belgian but we're not so sure
