For sale is a beautiful table lamp made by The Bradley and Hubbard Manufacturing Company of Meriden, CT. The style of the lamp is a late oil lamp with an outstanding Emeralite cased green Pinwheel pattern shade. The table lamp is a nice size as it stands roughly 19 1/8 to the top of the shade and 24 3/4" tall to the top of the chimney. The overall diameter of the lamp with the shade and chimney installed is roughly 12". This is the outside measurement of the shade. The foot is roughly 5" square.
The table lamp is a professionally restore late oil lamp converted from oil to electricity properly. The pattern is known as the "Trophy" based by Bradley and Hubbard collectors. The shade is just outstanding and quite rare to find. It displays a cased green color that actually lights a Teal Blue Green. It has an intricate Pinwheel design accented with a bulls eye in a diamond pattern encased within the glass. The shape is known as a "Tamoshanter" shape and this shade is quite rare to find. These were made by Emeralite which was the same Czech company as Bellova Lamps.
This table lamp is in excellent restored condition. The condition of the shade and base is outstanding for over 125 years of use. The shade when flicked with finger rings like fine crystal. I see no parts on the base missing and only a small indent in the oil fill cap that carries the B & H signature mark. The shade has the tiniest flea bites along the top outer edge and firmly believe these were done at time of manufacture. These type lamps do not come any better than this one. I have been in the antique lighting business for some 43 years and can honestly say this is the best example of this lamp I have ever come across.
Purchase with confidence as these lamps have been a worthy investment that has risen steadily for the past 30 years. This style of shade is the most desirable and hardest to find. I'm quite sure the buyer will be well pleased with their purchase. This lamp would look great in a Parlor or Victorian setting. This lamp was made circa 1885-1905.
The lamp will be shipped in 2 separate boxes. The base in one and the shade and chimney in another.
