Registered Designs
Associated with Fairy Lamps

The following table contains documented and undocumented registered designs associated with fairy lamps.  In some cases the design refers to the complete fairy lamp, however, in many cases the registered design is associated with only the dome, base, pattern, or other fairy lamp fitting.  It is important to understand that the originator of the registered design is not necessarily the manufacturer. Samuel Clarke is an excellent example.   Samuel Clarke did not actually produce any complete fairy lamps, shades, or bases.   Instead, Samuel Clarke commissioned or licensed various glass and pottery manufactures throughout the world.  Samuel Clarke did, however, produce the candles or, as they were known, "Fairy Lights." 

The following table was derived from several sources including the Great Glass website in the United Kingdom, Fairy Lamp Club Newsletter article Registration Number Identification by Roger, Issue VIII, April 1998; the UK Patent Office, the Antique Glass and China - A Guide for the Beginning Collector by Geoffrey Godden, and a large portion of design numbers were obtained from Identification of English Pressed Glass, 1842-1908 by Jenny Thompson. 

While extensive, the following listing is far from complete.  If you know of other registered design numbers associated with fairy lamps please drop me a note at jimsapp7@msn.com and I will update the listing.  I would also appreciate any information that would help to identify the "Unknown" design owners.

The photographic examples "Ruf-xxx" were obtained from Fairy Lamps - Elegance in Candle Lighting by Ruf & Ruf.  The "Undocumented - xxx" examples were provided by several members of the Fairy Lamp Club and are on-line in the "Undocumented Fairy Lamp Photo Gallery" for your convenience.   The "A-Px-x" examples are from 19th Century Fairy Lamps by T. Robert Anthony.
