Circa 1850s to 1870s Eastern USA. Antique lamp very much like one in Catherine Thuro's Oil Lamps II, page 48 item f. Star cuts in thick white glass overlay to ruby (or cranberry) glass.
Brass cinch collar and connector. Milk glass base in baroque pattern. Large size, 15 inches tall.
Condition: It has been electrified and now has the stem filled with putty. The glass has no damage and quite beautiful.
Solid brass double arm desk lamp. The shades and base are red enamel on steel. Toleware design from probably 1920-1940. Stands 21 inches to the tip of the ring finial. Nothing cheap about this lamp. As an example of the quality construction, it automatically balances with spring loaded feet. Separate controls.
Condition: No dents or other damage. Natural patina on the brass which we have not polished. It is rewired for the US but we kept the old cloth covered wire to prove its age. As you see, someone has loved this lamp and taken good care of it.
Early twentieth century Sandwich Glass pattern. Matching pair of mantle or bedroom lamps with hurricane shades and crystals. This Petal & Shell pattern has double rows of beads in each petal. Identified in American and European Pressed Glass in the Corning Museum of Glass by Jane Shadel Spillman, p. 352 as "probably United States ca. 1920-1935" and that is consistent with the style and hardware.
11 3/4 inches tall with the shades on. The bases are 4 1/2 inches across. The shades are blown and definitely old. All the hardware is old and looks to be original. They have cloth cords and plastic plugs. The sockets were made by Arrow, USA.
The twelve crystals are not old. The ones that were on it were the same size and style as these.
Condition: We don't see any chips or cracks. They are in remarkable condition. The insides of the founts are a bit dirty but would have to be taken apart to clean them.
Beautiful cut to clear. A dark red wine or burgundy encased.
2 light. I recommend a 40 watt in the top and a 25 watt candelabra bulb in the base. (Note: I don't recommend using energy savers in this because they burn so hot.)
In-line switch on a 45 inch brown cord.
22 inches tall. The shade is 13 wide. It weighs about 6 1/2 pounds.
It will be disassembled for shipping in two boxes. To put it together just install the small bulb, drop the cord down through the base and gently hand tighten the screws around the top. Install the shade and gently tighten the screws around it. Simple!
Condition: No damage.
