Hanging Victorian Lamps of the Nineteenth Century: Identification & Values (Identification & Values) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this beautiful new book you will find one of the finest collections of library lamps in existence today. This book contains an array of Victorian library lamp shades ranging from hand-painted Bristol to art glass shades of cranberry, ruby, yellow, amber, vaseline, blue, green, amethyst, and more. Manufacturers featured include The Ansonia Brass & Copper Company; The Bradley & Hubbard Company; The Meriden Malleable Iron Company; The Edward Miller Company; The Charles Parker Company; and The Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass and Glass Company. The glass produced by these companies ranged from white Bristol to beautiful colored crystals, satins, and mother of pearls, often designed in patterns of hobnail, bullseye, diamond quilt, swirl, zipper, snakeskin, geometric, raindrop, and so on. Full-color, full-page photographs are included in this detailed book. Victorian library lamps were not only sold at distribution retail stores operated by the manufacturers, but also sold by huge retail giants. When using independent retailers catalogs, the task of verifying correct manufacturers is quite challenging; this book attempts to pinpoint various manufacturers for readers. 2008 values.
