BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN OIL LAMP FRAMEWORK FOR RESTORATION
This is a cast iron oil lamp frame from the late 1800s early 1900s perfect for restoration. The frame is a full 36" high when fully pulled down on the chains which all work very smoothly. Once pushed up it is about 29" from the bottom of the lower section to the top of the topper section. Originally the frame held a kerosene lamp in the "cradle" on the bottom section with a chimney that ran up through a glass shade housed in the top sections. There are parts for these lamps, both repros and originals so not too hard to restore. This lamp can also be converted to electric. I am not an expert but feel this is a unique piece of history in good condition, ready to restore.
Lamp features an Eastlake-like motif, very decorative ironwork. The top, heavier section measures about 10" across, the center about 7" and the lower dish that holds the lamp is about 5" across.
The top section is marked with April 24, 1977? a patent date? The name of the company that made it is hard to make out but an expert will know this maker.
Piece is very heavy,, about 15 lbs. so free local pick up or I will adjust this estimate once final destination is known.
Shipping estimate to lower 48 states. Thanks for looking!

NOTE: the year 1977 should say 1917, this was my typo
