This is the nicest looking Old Western themed lamps that we were fortunate enough to have found! This Old West Pony Express lamp is very heavily constructed from solid brass and features the unique single post design. Something you would expect to see at an old Pony Express office or western saloon. It can just as easily sit on a table or hang on a wall indoors or outdoors. It has an attached loop located on the top of the lantern for easy hanging. The small plaque on the hood reads: Pony Express - Property of C.O.C. & P.P. Express Company - Est. 1860.
The brass has a nice patina overall giving it a rustic character and making it a very nice item to decorate with. Personally, I think this color, along with the very nice patina on the brass is a big part of its appeal to most collectors. Since it is brass, I'm sure some will want to polish it to a high luster if that's the look they desire. Any final cleaning or polishing will be left up to the lucky buyer. This Old West Pony Express lamp is 24" in height by 9" wide. The lantern is complete with glass chimney, 9" hood, and wick. RP$300
To fill this lantern the burner unscrews from the top of the oil reservoir. Please note that this oil lamp is being sold for decorative purposes only. It has not been cleaned or checked before it is shipped. If you plan to actually burn the lamp, then we first suggest cleaning it, filling the reservoir with lamp oil and placing the lamp in a utility tub overnight to be sure that it doesn't leak oil prior to setting it on a desk or other piece of good furniture. Keep out of the reach of children.
