It has all of its original parts and is in incredible condition: from the glass, to the crystals to the brass pieces. The detail and scroll work on the brass are amazing as is the hand-painted dome shade. It has a complete compliment of 82 crystals that hang beautifully along the top and bottom.
The Font (or fount) Oil Bowl : It has the original No. 2 Queen Anne Brass Wick and it works as if it were new. The Glass bowl is a bullseye Clear & Cranberry Red color Depression Glass with several patterns in it, including: Thumbprint, Hobnail, Quilted or Diamond patterns.There are no chips in the glass but there is a hole in the bottom that looks to have been drilled out. We're not sure if that was original or not. There is a NEW rubber plug in the bottom of it so that it does hold oil in it (perhaps this hole was for cleaning & draining). This Lamp ALSO comes with a CONVERTED Electrified Lamp that screws in easily to the same bowl for a light bulb option. (We are including BOTH with this lamp). It looks to have been the original wick holder that was converted - it is also a No 2 Queen Anne. It has been tested and works great. (The cord is designed to be wired into a ceiling outlet). The Dome Shade : This is a gorgeous hand-painted (NOT DECAL) Pansy Floral design over Milk Glass.
The paint is in incredible original condition. As is typical, it has one side painted with a LARGE Red, Yellow and Pink Pansy and 2 smaller ones (which matches the Font Bowl perfectly) in the front and a smaller pansy and vine in the back. The shade has no cracks or chips in it (and will be CAREFULLY packed to MAKE SURE it arrives as it is now).It DOES have the Original matching Brass Crown. The Dome Shade measures approximately 14" diameter on the base and 6" diameter on the top with a 5 diameter opening.
It is approximately 7 tall. The Hanging Crystals : This lamp has a FULL Compliment of Original Surround Crystals on top and bottom! There are a total of 58 Crystals that hang on the on the lower Shade Band and 24 Crystals that hang from the top Prism Band. (82 total) These crystals are in AMAZING condition. There are hardly any chips in them at all, which is quite unusual.
They're in excellent condition. We will pack these VERY carefully to have them arrive in the same condition. The Brass Pieces: The Brass Canopy, Smoke Bell, Prism Band, Shade Band, Chain Connectors, Font Holder, Arm Frame and Bottom Finial are ALL in very good condition.All of these parts are original to the lamp and match. There are some invariable small dings here & there in the brass, but nothing major or even noticeable. These parts have NOT been polished.
Some people like the patina as is so we have left it for you to decide as to whether to polish the brass. This lamp DOES NOT have the "motor" to it.
It's set up currently to be flush against the ceiling or hung by the provided wire (see photos). You are going to LOVE this lamp!!We have many antiques and vintage collectibles - see our other items.
