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 only a few Decorated Opal Art-Glass Color-Ways including this one, “MERMAID & SEAGULLS” and the mosaic styled “JOAN OF ARC” Decorated Opal Art Glass Parlor Vase Lamp shown elsewhere in this listing. 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.
