GEORGIAN GLASS SMOKE BELL. Circa 1820.
This beautifully shaped Georgian Glass Smoke Bell, with folded rim detail, dates from circa 1820.
Smoke Bells were hung above Oil Lamps to catch the smoke and prevent the ceiling from becoming sooty. It would make an interesting feature in a modern home, either hung or as a cover for an exotic plant or confection.
