I've collected antique lamps and shades for many years, but now my wife and I have decided to pass some of them on to good people like you. This shade, with the charming light house and flowers, is 13 1/4 wide, original, and rings like a bell if you tap it with your thumb. The bottom edge is rounded, indicating, I believe, that the shade is hand blown. It is 6" high, and the top opening is 5 3/8" wide.IMPORTANT: The shade and glass oil font are MATCHING, factory original. The cover for the winding mechanism, smoke bell, crown to the shade, oil font and THE ENTIRE FRAME are all either brass or bronze, so if you should decide to polish this fine example of antique art, you can convert it from beautiful to absolutely stunning! From what I can determine, using my trusty magnet, only the chain is of other metal. The winding mechanism is correct, and will need a bit of TLC to get it working well. Currently, the lamp is approx. 30 from top to bottom. It has never been electrified.
The original wick adjuster reads White Flame Light Co. There are no prisms missing, and they are in very good to excellent condition. The 10 chimney is more recent than the rest of the lamp. I have found no chips, cracks, or other damage to the glass shade or matching oil font.
There is little evidence of significant dings, scratches, or signs abuse to the metal, with the exception of the winding mechanism cover, which shows signs of use in the two areas where the chains go through to the mechanism. Please consider that this lamp is an antique, and by its very nature of being old, is not "dead mint" or perfect.
