Diamond point-engraved storm lamp

Stock Number: 2916

This is what we believe to be a stipple-engraved, Georgian glass, storm or hall candlestick dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800.  
 
The candlestick is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200+ years of use. 
 
The candlestick is of true baluster form and measures 10 cm (4 inches) in diameter at the neck rim.  The flared neck then swells again towards the base and the body is decorated with a stipple-engraved fruiting vine.  The bowl sits on a trumpet folded foot which bears a rough pontil mark.  The candlestick is 20 cm (8 inches) in height.   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
 
It is made from English lead glass.
