Victorian Hanging Lamps

Victorian Era Hanging Lamps combine some of most decorative period metalwork with fine Victorian glass shades. Parker, Rochester, Edward Miller, Bradley & Hubbard, and Ansonia are just a few of the companies that produced prismed library or parlor lamps. All types of Victorian art glass are represented in the shades, fonts and appurtances used on these lamps. Glass shades, fonts, and smokebells were available in white Bristol skillfully painted with florals or scenics; in plain or opalescent patterned cranberry, ruby, pink, blue, amber, and vaseline; as well as Burmese, Cut-Velvet, Cameo, and Mother-of-Pearl in many colors and patterns. Every 19th century budget had a lamp available for purchase, from a simple Cottage Lamp to an exceptional high style Victorian art glass masterpiece in a fancy cast frame. These kerosene oil lamps are highly prized by today's collectors for their combination of delicate castings, quality glass, and intricate engineering all in one lamp.
