Six of the auction’s expected top achievers are overlay kerosene stand lamps, made in America between 1860 and 1880 by Boston & Sandwich Glass Company in Sandwich, Massachusetts, as well as other manufacturers. The makers of these six examples are unknown, but that doesn’t make them any less desirable. Their rarity and aesthetic appeal will attract keen bidder interest.
