The lamp was converted to electric. You can raise and lower the height with small screw on stem. This is a brass lamp with hurricane glass with white shades. The top of the oil tank is missing the top knob but in great shape for being over 100 yrs old.
The Lamp works great as can see in pictures. The wiring is old, would suggest have a lamp store rewire to current standards.
I found one very small cup on the edge of the glass shade. And the rim that holds the glass shade is a little bent and some scratches on the brass base. It has a nice patina and I have not tried to polish it. I noticed at the bottom of each side there is a missing screw on cap. At lowest height it is about 25" tall and 28" wide.
It's a great piece of of history to add to your collection. Please look at all pictures, they are part of the description. If any question please ask.
