Shortly after the founding of the Fairy Lamp Club in 1996, we began a project to document previously "undocumented" fairy lamps. The term "undocumented" is not, however, strictly applied to these examples. An undocumented example may be:
• well documented by drawings in catalogs or advertisements but no photographic example has been published;
• examples have been published but they are in black and white or are of poorly quality;
• similar designs have been documented or published but the undocumented example illustrates a significant variation in the design, size, texture, or color,
• no other documentation is available in either drawing or photographic form.
As you can see, the term "undocumented" is applied in the broadest form of definition. The overall intent - beyond laboring over the definition of "undocumented" - is to present to photographic examples of fairy lamps not readily available elsewhere. If you have examples that you would like to share with our website visitors, I would be very pleased to hear from you.
