    Here is my latest restoration fixture. I have collected indoor gas fixtures for many years, but this is only my second early electric restoration. I am guessing that it must date to approx late 1880's or early 1890's, as it looks a lot like a kero library lamp I recently restored. Anybody have more information? Thanks

    Added 2nd photo of the lower part of fixture to get more detail.
    Anybody have any ideas? Thanks

      Is it hanging correctly? wait I just turned my monitor on its side and it looks ok now, really it would be nicer looking if I didn't have to do that.

      Hi! It looks like an "eternal light" that hangs in some Lutheran, Episcopal and Catholic churches. When the lamp is lit it signfies that there is "blessed" host on the premises, ie. bread and wine.

      Thanks, mizjane,

      Might be a possibility. I think this was a gas fixture in its first life. Probably was converted to electric very early, hence the canopy and chains.
