Luxury Design, Past & Present
Offered is a Stunning 18" Reverse/Obverse Painted Lamp by the Pittsburgh Lamp & Brass Company. The satin glass scenic shade depicts a couple by the water, among ruins - swans on a lake - a stream, and birds flying. Towering trees also grace the scene. The obverse painting is of the small birds, which give some additional dimension to the scene.
The base is triangular with three dolphin supports. The coloring is dark green/black on brass, iron and cast white metal. Appears to be the original colors. Under/inside of base and cast iron loader are marked PLB&G Co. (The Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass & Glass Company)
There is wear to the finish on some metals as might be expected. The shade is perfect, no cracks or chips and no repainting. The finial appears to be a replacement, but is as old as the lamp. Has been fully rewired (including the 3 pull chain fat-boy sockets) and is in perfect working order. The pull chains all work smoothly, and have new paper insulators.
Measures 25-1/2"H overall and 18"W. May require two boxes to ship safely.
