  6. I'll try my best
  7. No, it's not quite my style to wear lol, due to its age and fragile nature I wouldn't even let someone try it on
  8. Beautiful piece, great find

  18. Thanks for the love!
  19. And thanks for the love!
  20. Oil lamps are really great, they not only look nice but ya can save on your electric bill! I have a rather extensive collection and most are just display pieces, but I do randomly burn different ones ...
  21. Well, the only other example of the lamp on the left that I've seen through my searching called this an umbrella font, makes sense lol, circa 1890s
  22. He seems thrilled lol
  23. Ya, the left one is pretty cool, I'm digging the font shape! Thanks again for your input Bob
  24. Ya true, thanks for the info!
  25. Did they make different models throughout the years? Mine has patent dates of 85 and 88 on it, just curious
  26. That's how they had it displayed when I purchased it, I'll fix it lol, thanks
  27. Oops, awe I was told 1880s , bummer, but still cool

  37. I've read that too Scott unfortunately, but I had to take a shot on them for what I paid, I contacted the Horse Soldier in Gettysburg and sent them pics so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for good news!
  38. Fantastic piece, my father owns a Babe Ruth signed ball but that doesn't come close to this!
  39. Hmmm, I never thought of doing that, good idea to find out if a hidden gem is underneath. Thanks for the info
  40. It's a victorian banquet lamp in very nice condition, either late 19th or early 20th century
  41. And the flat sided burner by Bridgeport looks fantastic on the Adams lamp!
  42. Cake stand is very cool looking btw!
  43. Yes, it has about half of the writing still intact on the bottom of the flowers so it's definitely without a doubt the ones that came with it, and as for the larger lamp I'm haven't taken it apart if ...
  44. Wow, that's great! Thank you so much! I actually ordered Thuro's vol 1 a few days ago, I currently only own vol 2 , Thanks again, Ed
