FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: A MAGNIFICENT PAIR OF GIANT, JUMBO, ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND, KEROSENE LAMPS, MADE. BEAUTIES ARE INDIVIDUALLY HAND PAINTED IN A TRADITIONAL "HE" AND "SHE". PATTERN, BY A VERY SKILLED AMERICAN MASTER IN THE BEGINNING OF THE 20th. COURSE, HAS A VERY SO. SLIGHTLY SOFTER AND WARMER TONES, GREENS, PINKS AND BLUES.
AND A "HE" HAS A TYPICAL BRIGHTER ACCENTS AND DETAILING. ACQUIRED FROM A VERY OLD VICTORIAN ESTATE IN SANTA ROSA, CA AND HAD BEEN IN ONE FAMILY.I WAS TOLD BY THE FAMILY MEMBER THAT THE LAMPS WERE USED AS. KEROSENE BEFORE AND AFTER WORLD WAR II AND. CONVERTED TO ELECTRICITY SOME TIME IN THE 60s. WHO EVER DID IT, KEPT THE BURNERS AND OIL POTS UNHARMED. WERE PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED, REWIRED AND STILL REMAIN IN A GREAT ORIGINAL CONDITION. THE JUMBO, 12 INCH GLOBES ARE STILL. WITH THEIR ORIGINAL METAL BRASS HEAT RINGS, THE ONES WITH LONG HOLDER. "FINGERS" THAT WERE ONLY MADE FOR. BY PLUME & ATWOOD MFG.
ALL THE METAL FINISHES ARE. ORIGINAL BRASS PLATED, NOT PAINTED OVER.THESE LAMPS ARE IN A SUPER FINE CONDITION. TRULY AMAZED HOW THEY COULD LAST THROUGH ALL THE CRUELTY AND UNPREDICTABILITY OF OUR TURBULENT. OF FINDING THAT KIND OF GLASS TREASURES.
IS VERY MINIMAL IN OUR DAYS. LIGHTING PIECES CAN ABSOLUTELY MAKE A TRUE VICTORIAN STATEMENT IN A. ROOM OF ANY SIZE OR A HALL. TO OVERLOOK, BUT YET THEY CARRY THE CALM AND PLEASANT SERENITY OF A LONG GONE VICTORIAN ERA, ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT.
THE MEASUREMENTS ARE: 31" TALL TO THE TOP OF THE CHIMNEY AND 12" AT THE WIDEST PART OF THE. DUE TO A VERY LARGE SIZE OF THE LAMPS.
