This is an Eastlake period kerosene table lamp that has been electrified and has an in-line switch on the cord. The lamp measures 16" in height, to the top of the deep-etched crown top gas shade. The detailed brass lamp base is 6.5" square, with a "foot" at each corner, and Eastlake designs. Above the base is a large piece of beautifully colored Longwy pottery -- the predominate color is a medium blue, with dark blue, purple, orange, and green flowers and leaves. The crown top gas shade is Eastlake in style and also is deep-etched with flowers and leaves. Both the shade and the lamp base are circa 1870. The condition is excellent--the shade has a few small chips to the tips of the crown top; there is no damage to the Longwy pottery or brass. Exact shipping costs are calculated at purchase.
