I've collected antique lamps and shades for many years, but now my wife and I have decided to pass some of them on to good people like you. THE RARE, ROBINS EGG BLUE SHADE is 14 wide, which is the correct width and shape designed for an antique hanging lamp with prisms, such as this one.
It is original, hand blown, and rings like a bell if you tap it with your thumb. The bottom and top edges are rounded, and NOT flat and rough like a reproduction would be. Also, if you care to look at it closely, you may well find evidence that it is the highest quality hand blown shade one might find. It is 6 1/2" high, and the top opening is 5 1/4" wide. The 10 chimney shows some evidence of rippling in the glass, as would an early chimney.
The smoke bell, crown to the shade, oil font and decorative support are all either brass or bronze, while the chain, cover for the winding mechanism, and circular shade support are other metals. The winding mechanism is correct, and will need a bit of TLC to get it working well. Currently, the lamp is approx. 43 from top to bottom. The mechanism cover as well as the smoke bell might be polished to blend in a bit better with the rest of the lamp.The burner has been removed some time in the past in favor of electrifying it. Another can be located and replaced. Currently, the lamp is not electrified.
There are no prisms missing, and I believe them to be in good to excellent condition. The metal hooks on some of the prisms are a bit brighter than the rest. On the lamp is stamped THE IMPROVED PATENTED JULY 1887. IMPORTANT: I have found no evidence of chips, cracks, or other damage to the glass shade.
In my opinion, it is as nice as one might find, and alone may well be worth the price of the entire lamp, perhaps more. I can find no evidence of significant dings, scratches, or signs abuse to the metal. Please consider that this lamp is an antique, and by its very nature of being old, is not "dead mint" or perfect.The item "RARE Robins Egg Blue Hanging Parlor Lamp, Library, Oil, GWTW, Antique, 1887" is in sale since Monday, February 15, 2021.
