I've collected quality, original antique lamps for years and now, at 74, have decided to pass some of them on to good people like you! The dealer told us that this came across the US in a covered wagon!
The height is 26" by 14" wide. The frame, with a beautiful patina is almost entirely, if not entirely brass. The winder, or mechanism that was under the top brass piece (used to raise and lower the lamp) has been removed in favor of ease in attaching the top to a standard electrical outlet in the ceiling, and is not included with the lamp.It has been electrified, and has served us well in this capacity for many years. However, I haven't tested it recently. On the little round wick adjuster is SUCCESS, of the Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass and Glass Co. This company was assigned at least five lighting-related patents between August 28, 1900 and March 21, 1916. The beautiful, HAND PAINTED 14 shade is HAND BLOWN and ORIGINAL.
You can tell that this is hand blown (please see photographs), as the lower edge is rounded and smooth, not flat and rough like a reproduction. The top of the shade is also rounded, smooth and created in a way that only original shades are.
If not perfect, the hand painting on the shade is near perfect. Not a scratch that I can find anywhere. Tap it gently with your thumb and it rings like a bell! And this is unusual, the 11 chimney is original, as evidenced by the rippled glass, showing the kind of NON perfection that reproductions never have.Rare to find an original chimney! There are no cracks or chips in the shade or chimney apparent to me. INCLUDES 30 PRISMS AND SMOKE BELL. Please consider the entire lamp is antique... By its very nature of being old, it is not "dead mint" or perfect. The item "Victorian Hanging PARLOR LAMP With Prisims (GWTW, Hurricane, Library, Oil Lamp)" is in sale since Wednesday, May 27, 2020.
