As this account is new my feedback is limited. I f you have any concerns or are understandably.Hesitant please put your mind at rest by viewing my feedback at 4evaold. PARLOUR KEROSENE OIL LAMP USA. This listing is for the complete lamp. All components, with the exception of the ball shade are USA mid to very late 1800's. The shade is English Victorian. If you are a purist this lamp may not be for you as even though all parts are age appropriate they are not original to this lamp. The base is in excellent condition with no chips cracks or damage to the spelter. It is very heavy and heavily embossed. This still has the original old gold finish which shows signs of wear and age by way of chips and loss to the paint/gilding. Its aged appearance did not concern me as it was displayed in a room which had distressed/shabby chic furniture.
If this is not to your liking it can be re-finished or painted to suit your décor. The fount is a mid to late1800's Plume & Atwood in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, scratches etc. (It does have dust around the collar - no extra charge). This fount is predominantly frosted with the scalloped band in clear glass. The burner is a complete and functional #2 Queen Anne in excellent condition.The fenced gallery is age appropriate and takes a 4 shade. The chimney is in perfect condition and I suspect it is a replacement although the glass if quite fine. This beautiful finely etched shade is also in excellent condition with little or no signs of wear. The top rim is immaculate. The fitter rim is without the usual fleabites however it does have one tiny chip. With the scalloping on the fount resembling petals of a bud nestled in the leaves of the base it reminds me of a lotus just before bloom. In saying this it is not distinctly effeminate and would complement almost any setting. H 690 mm 27 (with chimney). 415 mm 16 3/8 (top of collar). W 150 mm 6 (base square). 205mm 8 1/4 (base diagonal).
175mm 7 (fount at widest). Please view the photos carefully as they form a major part of the description.
