Oil lamps (pair)
Overall: 11 1/2 x 5 x 4 1/2 in. ( 29.2 x 12.7 x 11.4 cm )
One of a pair of colorless pressed lead glass oil lamp; domed hexagonal font molded with gothic-arched windows in panels joined by wafer to base with hexagonal baluster on flat hexagonal base with incurving sides; pontil mark and threaded brass collar.
The dome of the font was formed with the Magoun patent method. Developed by Joseph Magoun of the New England Works in 1847, eliminated mold marks by using a hinged, three-part mold to form the body of the font and a one-piece cylindrical mold to form a cylinder that was then tooled to form the dome.
