I found this vintage light fixture at a nonprofit architectural salvage store today. I have collected gasoliers for years, but rarely see them anymore. This was available today for $30. My best guess is that it was made around 1920. This "best guess" comes from my interest in collecting old light fixtures for many years. Until recently, I didn't buy anything that was made after about 1915. But today, I just couldn't resist picking this up. Maybe it was the lions on the side, maybe it was because of the brass, but, somehow, I just liked it.
It has been painted white. It will need to be rewired. It is primarily made of brass. The fitters are 3 inches.
I can't seem to get these pictures to rotate to be right side up.
Can anyone tell me if I am correct about the date of manufacture of this fixture.
