Pink/Peach Opalescent Hobnail Hanging Library Lamp
This circa 1880's kerosene oil hanging library or parlor lamp has a pink/peach opalescent hobnail shade. Exceptionally fancy frame with a wonderful Victorian art glass shade. This standard 14" shade is pink opalescent hobnail, with a deep peach tint to the pink color. Gorgeous color, the heavy opalescence contributing to the exceptionally rich color. Very desirable high dome shade at 7" tall. Flawless condition, no chips cracks or breaks. The color of the all cherry brass frame is a wonderful accent to the color of the shade. Still in kerosene oil condition, signed Bradley and Hubbard font (stamped on the bottom) and burner intact. Scroll and flower detail on the heavy cast side arms, patterned font cover, very fancy cast two-part rocker/leveler, stick and ball pattern shade ring and crown. 36 period spear point prisms echo the pattern of the smoke bell. Professionally polished, absolutely wonderful finish, ready to use. The lamp is 40" long overall unextended, and approximately 18" across the arms. Working motor/winder (with tension adjustor) in the canopy ; the lamp will extend at least another 20". Exceptional shade, exceptional frame.Exceptional period Victorian hanging lamp, estate fresh; great addition to any collection or decor.
