Description

LAMP – KEROSENE, EARLY TIN (NICKEL PLATED) SCONCE STYLE WHICH I BOUGHT FROM A REV WAR COLLECTOR IN BOSTON, MA IN THE 1970’S. IT CAME OUT OF THE “OLD NORTH CHURCH” (OF REV WAR FAME) IN BOSTON WHEN THEY CONVERTED TO ELECTRIC LIGHTS IN THE EARLY 1900’S. MADE BY ANSONIA CO (ON DIAL – HAS AN OLD SOLDER REPAIR) CA. 1850’S. ORIGINAL SHORT GLOBE (NOT THE NORMAL LONG BASE GLOBE OF LATER LIGHTS) THAT HAS A FLANGE AT BASE AND IS HELD IN BY A SIDE SCREW. THERE IS A UPPER FILL PLUG ON THE MOUNT, VERY UNUSUAL. STILL USABLE.
