Art Nouveau Oil Lamp
During the late 19th and early 20th century houses were lit with candles or oil lamps. The lamps would come in all grades from a cheap utility metal lamp, to elaborate silver or gilt lamp with ornate cut and painted globular shades.
Victorian brass oil lamp with ornate brass base and purple glass reservoir. Finished with a glass shade with a lovely art nouveau design, c1890. Would have been in a relatively wealthy household.
In good condition.
