Found in box with other parts from a recent pick, (see other post Angle Lamp). First picture is a hand blown globe 11" high and 11" in diameter, possibly from a globe chimney combo. Second & third pictures are of the tank for an Angle Lamp. Fourth pic not sure, I need the help of a lamp expert on these items.

    Sorry to say I can't help with any of these. The images just don't give me enough detail on the first and second images. I need measurements and views of the fitters. Not sure though even with that information if I can be of a lot of use with these.

    @ Lisa, considering as how I don't know to much about lamps, what do you mean by "fitters"?
  3. Lisa-lighting Lisa-lighting, 5 years ago
    Sorry about that. The fitter is the part of the shade that attaches to the lamp. The open part that has either a straight neck or a curve that could hold screw heads on the holder. Not the larger open end but the smaller one. On glass shades or metal shades. The metal piece that was in your 4th image if it has a hole in the end that doesn't show in the photo that is the fitter. In the first image the part that is sitting on the table is the fitter. I hope that helps.

    Thanks Lisa, I'll have to dig it out & measure those parts.
  5. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
    @ Lisa on the first image the fitter OD is 4 3/8" & on the fourth image the diameter is 5 1/2"

    Hi David! I'm pretty sure that the parts in photo 1 & 4 are not part of this Angle Lamp fount? I can't see how they would fit together. The Nickel Angle lamp is shown in my book but this one is missing the burner & tube-bracket underneath and the hanger part whether for a wall or ceiling attachment. It looks like a Model #102 since the same lamp in brass or antiqued copper was #182. The company recommended the Ceiling Models for rooms where central lighting was desired. RER(BOB)

    You're most likely correct on that Bob. I found them in the same box as it. I'm not sure that 1 & 4 are even from the same lamp. As for the other images, it is just a removable tank with a spring loaded valve, removable for filling. Ceiling lamp perhaps, as in pictures 1 & 2 in your post, the design is the same.

    From the size of it, it looks like it could be from a large Road or Street fixture. These globes were usually marked with the manufacturer's initials. BOB

    Thanks for your input on this globe Bob.
    I just realized that you had commented 4 months ago on the other parts, I should learn to read my own posts.
    I never saw any identifying marks on it, unless they were very small & I missed them.
