An Unmarked Smith & Co. Pewter Glass and Brass Chamber Lamp

An Unmarked Smith & Co. Pewter Glass and Brass Chamber Lamp

Although unmarked this chamber lamp is most assuredly a product of Smith and Co., of Boston. The company was located at 3 Haverhill Street in Boston from 1847-1849. They were successors to Thomas Smith and Co and were succeeded by Smith Morey and Company.

The glass on the font of this lamp is quite simple with plain flutes on the sides unlike the foliate decorated example we had on our last newsletter. Like the last Smith & Co. chamber lamp this is a combination of products from two different industries of the period, the pressed glass trade and the pewterering trade. The font for this lamp is pressed and cut glass likely produced by one of the glass makers in Sandwich or elsewhere in Massachusetts.

Smith & Co produced the "chamber stick" part. The font was attached to the pewter with plaster that holds to two parts together. The brass burner and its collar were attached the same way.

The lamp is in very good condition. It measures 7” tall to the top of the burner

Price: $150
