Rare Fine Antique Bronze Cornelius Astral (Or Solar) Oil Lamp - No Shade. Description: O ffered here for your consideration is a Rare Fine Antique Bronze Cornelius Astral (Or Solar) Oil Lamp.
It dates to the mid 19th century and is in overall good used condition with some light indentations, spots of corrosion particularly around the three feet. The slight green tinge you can see around the feet comes from the oil/liquid when it was being used. Otherwise, it has vintage character. I strongly suggest browsing the photos as they accurately portray the beauty of the piece. There is a signature plate for Cornelius & Co.
Patent dated April 1st, 1848 - although this signature plate is pretty faded, it might say 1843. Measurements: Height: 15 & 1/2 inches. Width: approximately 7 1/2 inches from foot to foot and approximately 6 & 1/2 inches in diameter at top. I can hear a little a little something rattling around inside. Judging from the bottom, someone converted the lamp in to an electric lamp but, at a later point, changed their mind.If you plan on converting it to an electric lamp I strongly (and always) suggest rewiring. P lease ask any and all questions before purchasing. I have taken over thirty pictures of this lamp, so if you require an additional pictures then please request any additional pictures before purchasing. As this piece is over 12 inches tall, it will be considered an extra large package and will be charged accordingly.
