Ornate Manhattan Brass Co Handled Urn Lamp Tulip Shade c. 1880 Beautiful ornate rare Manhattan Brass Co (MB Co) handled urn footed lamp base. Plume Atwood fuel tank and duplex burner altered and converted to electric. Manhattan Brass Co. specialized in student lamps, carriage and bicycle lighting. It is very rare to find something such as this handled urn lamp base. Very small, on the inside of one of the feet, is a raised 'MB Co' and under a larger stamped 1258. We cannot tell what the bright finish on this piece is; it has faded areas, tarnished areas, super shiny areas, some stains and a few strange very small microscopic bubbles. No cracks or splits on the brass urn lamp base. Plume Atwood burner and fuel tank has been drilled for electric wiring. Inspected and safe. In-line rotary switch. Lots of tarnish and grime on burner and fuel tank. Original P A control knobs are present providing a great Victorian look! Frosted tulip shade rests on 4" shade fitter and is graduated bronze hue to frosted with etched ornate designs. No cracks or chips. Has a frosted light bulb used in images as a clear bulb was too bright. 16" x 10.5" Overall neat rare Manhattan Brass Co. main lamp, P A burner and fuel tank ruined for electricity and a graduated hue shade that matches a brass finish! Please examine images closely sold as-pictured as-described. Based on experience shipping may result in the need to adjust, tweak, straighten metal components to display as-pictured. Shipping includes EXPENSIVE BRAND NEW HEAVY DUTY BOX and BRAND- NEW BUBBLE WRAP. Double walled boxes have corner crush certification. Although expensive helps ensure as-pictured delivery while avoiding disappointment and damage to an historical item. (This item will require 2 heavy duty boxes telescoped together) Thanks For Looking! See our other items! Diane Ed's Antiques - Curios (Pictures are a part of our description!
