This lamp is in the style of the earlier English Regency period, with several design features: the lion, palm & laurel themes, Neoclassical features, elegant proportions, and good weight.

The design consists of a silver plated base with faceted crystal column. There is an attractive patina on the silver that contrasts with the clear reflective surfaces of the crystal.

On top of the feet there is an acanthus leaf decoration. An exquisite cut crystal cylinder in the `Hardwicke` pattern becomes the trunk of the palm tree. At the top a laurel decoration in silver plate leads to the crown & leaves. Then there is a new lamp holder covered by a new cream card candle tube.

The lamp is finished with a vintage clip-on grey silk lampshade of later date. It has grey fabric trim and metallic gold lining.

The lamp carries 1 standard small screw light bulb (E14) up to 40 Watts. At present fitted & photographed with a Candle Clear shaped lightbulb of 25 Watts, which is included in the price.

STUART CRYSTAL ENGLAND HISTORY

The Company was established in 1827 by Frederick Stuart, a skilled glassmaker, in the city of Stourbridge, England. In 1920 the iconic `Red House Glass Cone`, a conical brick structure where the crystal was manufactured, was purchased in Wordsley, which is today a glass Museum.

Stuart Crystal gained a reputation for producing high quality, handcrafted crystal glassware. In 1924 the Company began etching the name Stuart on the pieces. They developed numerous patterns such as the `Medallion Glass Cameo` & the diamond & floral motif `Beaconfield`.

It was also famous for supplying crystal items to shipping liners such as the Titanic, and later in the 1930`s for the Queen Mary. In 1995 Stuart Crystal was bought out by the Waterford Wedgwood Company and finally closed in 2001.

THE REGENCY STYLE IN ENGLAND

It covers the period from 1811 to 1820 when George, Prince of Wales, governed the country as `Regent` during the madness of his father George III. Originally known as “English Empire,” this style was eventually named after England`s Prince Regent. The Regency Style owes a great deal to the French Empire Style, but refinements were added to make it more suitable to English tastes. It retained classical elements of the Georgian period but opened up to more Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Asian and French influences.
