Vintage Ornamental Brass and Hand Painted Glass Table Lighter from Evans USA.
Evans USA began their life as a handbag manufacturer in 1910. During the 1920's they began manufacturing beautifully decorative table lighters...an interesting turn of course. Their compact unit allowed them to create many designs, easily fitting the small housing into place. They were highly popular during the 1940's and 1950's, finally ceasing business in 1970.
A gorgeous piece, in excellent condition. It does appear that it slants slightly...I'm not quite sure how a piece like this could be "bent" that way but apparently it was. The top brass enclosure for the lighter housing does turn (just the enclosure and not the housing itself), as opposed to being stationary.
7"(17.8cm) tall and 3 7/8"(9.8cm) in diameter at base.
