AR06 - A glass luminary of Thomas Jefferson in 1800.  

The item has the image of Jefferson, sandcarved in 

reverse, on the back side of a 6"x8"x.188" glass 

rectangle which is illuminated from behind by a 

multi-lamp LED light.  The LED light is powered by 

3-AAA batteries (not included).    


This image of Jefferson is based on a Portrait by 

Rembrandt Peal, 1800, researched and made 

available by Karen Hatzigeorgiou on her website 

for vintage images, 


and is available from Wikimedia, Wikimedia Commons at 


This glass sandcarving also includes Jefferson's signature.  

The glass rectangle is held in position on a wooden 

base which is finished, stained, and comes with 

plastic pads on the bottom to avoid scratching 

the resting surface. 

Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the third 

President of the United States from 1801 to 1809.  He envisioned America as a force to counter the 

imperialism of the British Empire.  Several major accomplishments during his presidency include the Louisiana Purchase (1803), which doubled the size of the United States, and the Lewis and Clark

Expedition (1804–1806), which significantly advanced geographic and scientific knowledge of North America.  

Jefferson was one of the most influential Founding Fathers and scholars consistently rank him as one of the greatest U.S. Presidents.  

Makes a great night light or a light source to brighten a darker corner of your bookshelf.
