What are "fairy lamps"?

I think I have a "fairy lamp." It is floral, made of intricately designed white glass, is short, round and on a wooden base. The "shade" sits on the base. When lit the shadows and design of the flowers come out. It's beautiful but have no idea what it is and from what period. Thank you for your input.
