GORGEOUS ANTIQUE HURRICANE OIL LAMP WITH GLASS CHIMNEY AND GLASS GLOBE SHADE. ONCE TURN KEY OPERATION FOR WICK ADJUSTMENT HAS NOW BECOME THE ON OFF SWITCH FOR ELECTRIC. YES THIS HAS BEEN CONVERTED TO ELECTRIC.BRILLIANT ORNATE BRASS BASE WITH FOUR FEET A LONG POLE STEM WITH A DECRORATED BRASS BOWL WHICH ONCE HOUSED THE OIL. IT HOUSES A 10 INCH CLEAR GLASS SHADE CHIMNEY AND A A 9 1/2 INCH WHITE GLASS GLOBE SHADE AND IT WITH A 9 1/2 INCH DIAMETER. THE CHIMNEY NESTS WITHIN FOUR PRONGS AND THE GLOBE COMES DOWN OVER THE CHIMNEY AND THEN RESTS ON A ROUND BRASS SHELF TO BALANCE ITSELF FREELY. THE WHITE GLOBE SHADE HAS A PAINT TO THE UPPER TOP AND LOWER BOTTOM AND AROUND THE CENTER ARE FLORAL TRANSFERS. THE GLOBE TO ME I THINK WAS A MARRIAGE AFTER THE STORM PASSED IF YOU ARE UNDERSTANDING ME, THE FIRST BROKE AND THIS IS A REPLACEMENT. IT IS VERY HANDSOME SHADE AND BRASS HOUSING, THE CORD IS GOOD BUT I MAY SUGGEST A REWIRE FOR SAFETY BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW WHEN LAST THE WIRING WAS UPDATED. IT LOOKS SMASHING ON A FOYER TABLE OR A TEA TABLE AND BY ITSELF MAKES A MARVELOUS DISPLAY AND A SHOW STOPPER. 1257 S.S.N.Y. ON THE PAINTED BRASS BASE. A CHILD WITH WINGS SITS EATTING GRAPES RAISED ALL THE WAY AROUND THE VESSEL. ALL THE ORNATE IS PUFFED OUT IN CAST FORM. VERY PRETTY AND VERSATILE. 30 INCHES TALL WHEN ALL ASSEMBLED. I WILL SUGGEST STRONGLY THAT TWO BOXES BE USED FOR SHIPPING, GLASS IN ONE AND METALS IN ANOTHER. APPROX 10-12 $$ PER BOX PLUS INSURANCE FOR MINIMUM 100.00
