1890's lamp with brass base and hand painted glass shade
This lamp has been in my family for generations, belonging first to my Great Grandmother who was 12 when slavery was abolished. It has a brass base stamped with 1729. The glass shade is hand painted with birds. It may have originally been a gas lamp because there is a space in the top of the shade where a piece was added to convert it to electricity. This lamp has all original parts.
