Offered is this beautiful turn of the century hanging oil lamp with a gem embellished brass frame having a lovely bird design, a milk glass font and a milk glass shade with a very nice hand painted scene that encircles the entire shade of cabins, trees and mountains. Also included is the original marked Scovill Mfg.2 hinged burner, a brass smoke bell and 48 lower glass prisms and 20 upper prisms, it also has what appears to be its original blown glass chimney. The brass crown that sits atop the shade seems too large for this placement and doesn't fit snug to the top rim of the shade, but it matches the rest of the brass in design. It may be an upper hanging ring that goes somewhere between the top and the lower and not the shade crown. Other than that discrepancy, this appears complete and has it's original chain retracting top. It pulls very tight, but it does work.
I didn't play with it a lot, all the chain is there and it runs as it is supposed to on small pulleys from larger pulleys that take up the chain length. I would suggest a good oiling of this to get it to pull out smoothly and without some muscle. I only pulled it out about 4 inches and then slowly allowed it to retract back in and it was very tight. The photos tell it all on this great lamp.
It has no damage, no chips or cracks to the glass and other than some age change to the brass, as can be expected, the frame also has no damage or missing parts. The birds are either peacocks or some sort of Pheasant type of bird. Measurements are: 32" tall with the chain retracted completely into the top x 19" wide to the scrolls on the frame, the shade appears to be 14 across at the base.
This is just a great piece and would be right at home in a cabin setting or any victorian setting as well. Please ask any question if I have not already covered them.One box for the shade and one box for the frame and other parts. Don't hesitate to make a serious offer.
