This is an absolutely outstanding oil lamp from the late 1800s. It is still an original kerosene oil lamp which has not been converted to electricity. The oil font is a Wave Crest Helmschmied Swirl shape pattern white glass with hand painted blue & red flowers with green leaves scattered around the font. It sits on a brass connector to a Uranium glass column pedestal which is connected to a metal 4 sided base. On top is a round inverted globe/shade also made of Uranium glass and it sits in a brass burner globe ring and a new wick burner. One of our photos shows the Uranium glass reflection of the green glass using a small black light on it. If I had a large black light it would be spectacular. The gentleman I purchased it from said he recently replaced the wick burner but used a replacement burner made in China. Included is a 9" clear glass chimney and the lamp stands about 22" tall. The globe is about 8" in diameter and about 4" tall. This lamp is in excellent condition with the exception of a few very tiny nicks on the bottom rim of the lamp globe/shade. If you are looking for an oil lamp that has not been electrified you will not find a nicer one than this one. Add this one to your collection or to your homes decor.
