Steuben Vase Shape #3273 as a lamp: The vase blue Aurene vase base is 14.75 h and the full lamp 25 h. Most of the examples of this vase/lamp in the Shape Gallery have floral or oriental acid etched designs.
Durand Lamp Shape #1900, iridescent blue with a white heart and vine pattern. The lamp has brass fittings. The glass is 6.5 in height and the full lamp is 16 high. Since Durand, himself, used vase shapes to make lmaps, there is no way to know if this was originally made as a lamp or drilled at a later time.
Steuben Candlestick, Shape #686 in gold Aurene. This was only of the most popular candlesticks. It came in five sizes from 6 to 14 in height, and was produced in a wide variety of colors.
A pair of Tiffany candlesticks in blue Favrile. They are just under 12 in height. The difference in color illustrates the difficulty in reproducing glass despite written formulas.
A Durand candlestick, Shape #2500, 9.5 in height. It is blue iridescent in a King Tut pattern with a gold iridescent foot and top. This was originally sold as a pair of candlesticks with a matching compote.
