    I am not familiar with this type of lamp. Is there a particular maker of this type of lamp? Is it hand painted? I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks!

      There isn't much info. on who made these Parlor or Composite (with many materials used) Oil Lamps but there are many catalogues from retailers (Nathan Russel, Pitkin Bros., Geo F. Bassett of N.Y. to name a few) that document them for sale at the time. They were popular and made from the late 1880's till the early 1900's. Bradley Hubbard and Edward Miller & Co. (to name a few) made the metal parts and the glass was made by many glass makers of the time like Fostoria , Atterbury, Central Glass, Consolidated glass, etc. Many of these lamps were not given names and the fonts were interchangeable (used on different bases). They usually did not have matching glass shades but some had Milk glass flanged shades that were decorated to match the design on the stem or had frilly shades that fit over the chimney. I recognize the design on this font....in fact I once had this lamp font on an all metal base and if I recall, it was by Edward Miller & Co. of Meriden,Conn.
