This pair of antique cut glass oil lamps would look lovely on a mantel or a buffet. The octagonal bases are completely cut in a panel and geometric pattern. I don't know maker, but suspect that these may be English, late 19th century.
The lamps were electrified by a previous owner, in a non-invasive manner. They were fitted with screw-in electric fixtures, and the cords have in-line switches. There are some thin wires holding the cords closer to the lamp bases in order to make them less obtrusive. Shades are frosted, with a band of decorative motifs left clear.
They take a small candelabra-type bulb.
I can't vouch for the age of the ball shades, but suspect they are vintage, but not original to the lamps. They rest on the fixture ring. This fixture ring would also accommodate a chimney, if you want to add one.
(Note that green dot on lamp bottom is a felt furniture protector I forgot to remove before I took photos).
Note: International shipping is not available for this item.
Size: Bases approximately 9" high to top of collar, total height 15.75" with shades . Shade diameter approximately 6"; base diameter 3.75".
Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, Returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
