Extremely rare “Great Horned Owls” Hanging Lamp by Pittsburgh. The Owl lamps produced by Pittsburgh came in both two table lamp versions, an open and ball shade variant, and in the exceptionally rare hanging lamp version. The shade features a pair of Owls on the front and a singular Owl on the reverse, while the font glass features a singular Owl on the front and branches on the reverse.
This is exceptionally rare variant of this frame for the owls style hanging lamp. This version has not only a cast brass harp but the harp only attaches to the font from the top, letting the font float without having support from the bottom. This version also has upgraded standoffs on the shade band with twistys connecting it to the spreaders.
Our hanging lamps are typically photographed without any prisms, as to not obscure any parts of the lamp being shown. All hanging lamps include a full set of old standard prisms & chimney, otherwise they include the prisms shown. Upgraded prisms may be requested upon availability. The shades shown on the lamp is our best determination for the aesthetic appeal of the lamp, we have inventory on many different shades.
A note about hanging lamps; due to the large amounts of pieces comprising a hanging lamps most lamps didn't come in a "standard" version or with a particular shade, except in the case of matching shade and font glass. All our hanging lamps come with matching components, that is all components were made by the same company and generally match in pattern. There are upgraded components that can be added or changed out on our lamps, i.e. twistys instead of chains. Please contact us for more info about upgrading components.
We strive to do our best at attributing the correct manufacturer with each hanging lamp but that is not always the case with some of the rarer lamps and more obscure companies that produced some of these lamps. Most hanging lamps are attributed to a manufacturer due to a component being identified as produced by a particular manufacturer. Very rarely do any of the original trade catalogs surface to unequivocally tie a lamp to a particular company.
