This is a very rare fairy lamp cut by the master at Gundy Clapperton. Gundy produced a number of cut and engraved designs like this and this piece is signed with their trademark on the base.
There is a vesica throughout the pattern which features flowers (perhaps daisies?). The vesica is bordered by notching. Between each of the engraved panels is a stack of three hobstars and the top of the shade is finished with a deep hobstar. The base of the lamp is finished with an unusual half moon and notched border.
Fairy lamps like this do not come up often – from memory, this is the only the second Brilliant Cut one I’ve ever offered. It measures 13″ tall and 5″ wide and is in perfect condition. It still works and lights up!
