It's really rare to find such a beauty in red ruby glass in this such good condition. Very good antique condition, very well preserved. No cracks, chips, damage, missing pieces or repairs s. Only top wired for lighting.
No one has told me this but it looks like the brass was totally cleaned and polished and then treated with an anti tarnish agent so the brass will stay in a clean and polished state over time and will not tarnish. I can't be positive about this so it might or might not be the case. Converted from oil and electrified with built in on off switch. Marked B & P with 5 star design (see photos).Quality hand blown and pressed dark ruby red molded. With exquisitely distinctive embossed rose pattern through out top and bottom ball. All thick heavy brass, not a wash or thin coat of brass (wonderful patterns, workmanship and details through out the brass). Top ball is 11 ½ wide. Wonderful in your home for the holidays, special occasions, every day use and display. Great for a hotel, upscale rental, condo or plush business waiting area. Terrific for designers or architects to enhance their design project or theme environment. Would be an absolutely amazing gift!
