~ C. 1858 Rare Bohemian Flint Overlay Cut To Clear - Possibly Harrach ~
Thick, opaque white overlay, w/ distinguishable hand-cutting marks, seen in the lenses. Unmarked
Quite exaggerated arc cutting, in the lenses of both the font shoulder, & base perimeter.
Honest & respectful base-wear, commensurate w/ age, [1850 - 1865].
It is conclusive, that this piece only accepts, Kosmos #10 or W&W, side-draught burners, directly corresponding to the lamp's 1 1/4" ID [inside diameter] brass collar.
Actual dimensions: 10.25"H x 5.5" base-width x 5.5" font-width.
VERY HEAVY & very high-pitched, tap ring.
Greetings, fellow collector!
I do have a newly emerging lamp group, dedicated exclusively to fine & higher-end, Victorian era ONLY, fluid-burning lamps.
The core focus of this special-interest group, is to showcase exemplary examples, of 19th c. lighting, for educational & knowledge-sharing purposes.
* MISSION STATEMENT *
"To feature the finer fluid-burning lamps, inclusive to the Victorian era - fitted with their respective, age-appropriate trimmings, & presented in their native, [fluid-burning] state."
Thus far, we are the only forum, which upholds this higher-bar standard of integrity.
We are also the only group, to date, that is specialized, in the 1837-1901 timeframe.
I would like to invite you to join us.
