Here's a very scarce unmarked antique American pewter single-lens lamp, ca. "Hockey-puck" font, pedestal base, single knob shaft, original pewter burner with twin-wick sheet iron wick tubes. This type of lens lamp is never marked, but is positively attributable to the Taunton, Mass.
Firm of Reed & Barton in its early years, ca. Its base and shaft are identical to those on marked, early-period R&B candlesticks. This example is in very good untouched condition. Overall height to top of lens visor = 8 3/4", base diameter = 4". Original surface patina; no repairs.Included with the lot will be a copy of the latest Bulletin of the Pewter Collectors' Club of America, which includes a 45-page article on such American pewter lens lamps (written by yours truly) and in which this lamp and many more--both period ones and later reproductions--are illustrated. In my 30+ years of dealing with pewter lighting, this is only the second single-lens lamp by Reed & Barton I have handled. Please see my other listings, too!
