Check out this Victorian Kerosene parlor lamp with a unique painting of American woodcocks. These are game birds which were popular during the Victorian period and even hunted today. The 10" ball shade and the lamp base display a pair of hand painted birds. These closely resemble snipes and are in the genus Scolopax family. The lamp has never been electrified but we can arrange to do so for a small additional cost. Notice the highly decorative brass casting below the shade and on the base. If you look very, very closely, you will see that the ball shade is possibly an older professional replacement. The coloring match perfectly, but the painted feet on the top birds do not match the paint styling on the bottom birds. Is it 2 different artists painting at the same time or a later replacement? It's Hard to say. The lamp is in excellent condition. 26"h X 10"w X 10"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1880's.
