12 - From bottom of shade to jeweled finial below basket. Charles Parker made gorgeous oil lamps, just Google Charles Parker hanging oil lamps on the internet. Same copper basket font covering, one jewel on each star and more deluxe prisms, otherwise they are almost identical.
I cant find his name on lamp but it is surely his. Charles Parker was related by marriage to the Bradleys of Bradley and Hubbard Manufacturing Co and in later years Parker acquired Bradley and Hubbard Manufacturing Co. The pattern on shade repeats twice, once on front and on back.Lamp has a smoke bell. It also has a winding mechanism that is completely encased in top piece. The adjustment Hand nut has a worn thread so it cannot be tightened enough to offset the weight of the lamp. So, the nut needs to be replaced or set the height where you want it and insert my homemade device (which I will include) which will hold any height you desire. The font covering is very rare and unusual, it is made out of copper.
This is a very high quality lamp and offered at a very reasonable price.
