I have an antique glass oil lamp, that was told to me to be a mid 1800 english whaling ship lamp. It stands about 7 inches high is shaped like an egg with a "C" shaped handle that goes from the top of the body of the lamp to the bottom. It's multi colored, torquise green, blue and white (slitely swirled) with a clear base.It's hand blown, as it sits a little lopsided. If anyone can tell me any more info. on it and hopefully what its possible worth is I'd appreciate it.My email address is email@example.com I've owned it for 20 years and have NEVER seen another lamp even closely resembling it.
look it up on E-Bay, you may be suprised . Good Luck, BLESSINGS
sounds beautiful. It's probably dates back to the 1870s-1880s. Is the bracket similar to this one http://www.rubylane.com/shops/cachetantiques/item/785 ? It may be milk glass which was popular for oil lamps at the time. Prices vary but they can be worth several hundred dollars depending on style and materials used.
