Rare Antique Student Lamp with Custard Glass Shade

We offer a very unusual antique height adjustable student oil lamp that has been converted to electric. The unusual horizontal font is stamped on the top: PAT. OCT. 28, 79. (1879). The lamp features a custard glass shade and clear chimney. The brass finish has wear and tarnish from the years but no dents. The base is weighted and a little rusty under the bottom. The lamp measures 12" tall without the shade and 18 1/2" tall with the shade and chimney in place. It measures 9" at it's widest point. The shade fitter is 7". The wiring is quite old and should be replaced. The custard glass shade is in excellent condition . Over all the lamp is truly in great condition for being over 130 years old!
