OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE: PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF PATRICIA M. SAX
This imported base, qualitatively beyond anything that was being produced in America at the time, was then subsequently supplied by the Philadelphia firm of Cornelius & Company with a "modern" solar burner, which bears patent dates of both 1845 and 1849, suggesting a date for the lamp of "after 1849."
The lamp was supplied by the Cornelius firm with a typical round globe, which may have been produced locally in Philadelphia, or acquired from such leading firms as the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company, with offices in Boston, Massachusetts, or the New England Glass Company of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
