A note from Mark Lawson about the lamp:

I’m sending a picture of a lovely leaded glass lamp from a company Bigelow and Kennard that was in Boston. It struck me that the quality was as good as any that I had seen made by Tiffany in the same period. I found a lovely article, describing how these types of lamps were made at this company back in the day.
