This is a splendid antique figural gas light, dating from the 1870’s. The all-spelter lamp features an intricately cast Spanish Conquistador in armor, wearing a cape, boots, and a long sword. The man holds up the gas light as he would a flag. The entire figure is incredibly detailed, including even the ornamentation on his helmet. The light is in good antique condition; there is a thin portion missing from the round base (pictured) and the sword is slightly bent (pictured). These minor imperfections are hardly noticeable and do not detract from the beauty of the piece. It measures 20 3/8” tall, 7 ½” wide overall, and has a round, grooved base with a 6 5/8” diameter.
