One of the lanterns was my wife's grandpas that he used when coon hunting. Also shown is an old book that gradpa had about coon hunting which has some great old time pictures in it. Also hanging there is the customized chain leash grandpa had for his coon hounds.

The four lamps in that picture are all nosegay pattern but in different styles that I have found over the years.

The double armed cast iron lamp fixture is my latest acquired treasure. It came from the Minott shipyard office in Phippsburg Maine. Patnd. dated 1891. The lights I found to put in the fixture are oil gaurd lamps dated 1870. It's been very interesting and fun exploring the internet to possibly find a picture of the shipyard office the fixture came from.

    I love the finger lamps and the different patterns on the tops of the chimneys.

    I like your collection of Nosegay lamps. I see that your lamps required those hard to replace Ebling collars that were so thin that it is hard to find originals that are not split. I also love your hanging lamp.! BOB (LOUMANAL)
