Although similar shaped lighting devices appear in the Dietz Catalog of 1865, no all glass latticinio lamps appear in any contemporary writings. The work of Nicholas Lutz while at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Co. would not be inconsistent with characteristics of this lamp such as a wafer construction, hollow baluster stem and domed foot. With regard to lighting devices, a known American pink and white latticinio font with applied peg does currently exist in a Connecticut collection

Latticinio work parallels B & K III, fig. 3402
