This is a charming tall, late Victorian banquet lamp that was used either as table lighting or just as probable, in the parlor. It was converted to electric use but I'm not sure when. In the last decade of the 19th century, progress in the science of illumination began to bypass the kerosene and oil lamp.Gas lighting had gradually taken its place in the streets of America as well as many homes. Following was Edison's electric lamp.
It wasn't long before people chose to convert their beautiful Victorian lamps for the use of electricity. This lamp has a recent cord and the electrical portions work well.
It is made of what is referred to as'White Metal' (silvery light metal alloy) and was cast from a mold. The metal cast font has an extraordinary amount of Ornate Flower, Leaf & Scroll detail. The connector to the striated alabaster stem and the footed base are also'White Metal' and very detailed with scroll work, flowers and the like.The burner (The Belgian USA), shade holder and oil tank are brass. It comes with a 8.5 inch globe with hand painted pink rose buds, green & blue/green foliage and brown accents with a circle of green at the top of the globe. The lamp stands about 30 inches to top of globe, 18 inches from base to bottom of burner and comes with a 10 inch chimney.
There are no cracks, chips or repairs on the lamp or globe. There is some expected time and use associated wear to the metal parts. Please feel free to ask questions, and don't forget to look over pictures!
