       Overview: This "GARGOYLE" Decorated Opal Art-Glass Parlor Vase Lamp with the Original Pittsburgh High Grade Trim Set stands 24 inches tall to the top of its mammoth 12-inch open half-shade.  This lamp is a real eye-grabber type of lamp – definitely the highest grade Gone-With-The-Wind style lamp you will ever find.

Lamp has been completely restored by
The 19th Century Lighting Co.

Manufactured By: The Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass & Glass Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in Factory #2, located in Swissvale, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Pittsburgh) overseen by vice-president & famous glass color-man Nicholas Kopp Jr.   (Circa 1900 - 1915)   This beautiful & rare lamp has been restored to its pristine, original flawless condition and is a real show piece for the more advanced collector.

Metalwork:   Lamp retains its original 3-piece “Success” brand, brass, Font, Burner & Chimney Holder, which has been completely restored to its original finish & luster. (Please note that we do not guarantee that this font, or any other font that we sell, will either hold oil/kerosene or that they will safely support combustion - the font is meant to be used for lamp globe support & lamp component completeness only)  All brass work has been restored to original finish & luster and the cast iron lamp-foot has been re-brassed to its original finish & luster also.  Lamp retains all of its original & authentic metal components right down to the original connecting bolt.  Still in oil, never electrified.

Original Colorways:  This lamp was originally produced in two different Decorated Opal Art-Glass Color-Ways – this one of brown and gold and another of crimson & gold.  It is an extremely rare & absolutely stunning lamp.  Chimney is a modern replica-replacement.  Original Opal Art-Glass is in pristine condition and has been chemically cleaned and re-etched to return it to its original finish and luster.

Electrification: Lamp has never been electrified and it is still in oil – however, for modern use, we can passively electrify this lamp, using the 19th Century Lighting’s Electrical Lamp Wiring Harness, without any harm what-so-ever to existing old & original equipment so that it can be enjoyed in today’s home settings.
