For your consideration is a victorian Consolidated Lamp and Glass Company parlor oil lamp that had been electrified. This lamp was given away as a promotional item in 1896 for Wrigley's Chewing Gum.
Both the shade and glass base are in good condition with no chips or cracks. They are made of white glass with pink and blue paint highlighting the embossed pattern of the glass and it has 2 different matching stenciled scenic pictures on the front and back. One side is a lady sitting lakeside with a boat in the water and the opposite side is a staircase and a lakeside. All of the metal has been polished but most parts can not be used to convert it back to oil. The font and liner have been cut down so there are no bottoms and the burner has solder marks and splits.
The brass connector at the bottom has small splits starting and the cast footed base has a drill hole in an original hole so an on/off switch could be installed at some point. Also the hole has been opened up where the bolt would of held the base together but now it's threaded rod. There is wear to the plating on the cast base and on the bottom it is marked in what appears to be 48. It measures approximately 23 1/2" tall to the top of the chimney and 20" tall to the top of the shade. At the feet of the cast base it is 7 1/4" x 7 1/4".
6 1/4" tall and the top open edge is 3 7/8" in diameter. It has a 9 7/8 fitter. Please review and enhance the photos as they are part of the description.
