Antique Brass Gas & Electric Combination Fixture

Product Image Gallery:
This is an elegant and exceptional gas & electric fixture with intricate casting detail in the body and beautiful original opalescent swirl shades, ruffled on the edge on the smaller electric shades. We have electrified the gas arms on this unusual fixture. The original gas units are patented October 20, 1908 by the Welsbach Company, who had factories in Gloucester, NJ and Columbus, OH. The Welsbach gas valves were inverted, which was very unusual and cutting-edge technology back in the day. Most combination gas & electric fixtures will have upward-facing gas valves and downward-facing electric sockets. The reason for these combination fixtures was due to the unreliable nature of the delivery of electricity to homes in the early days of electricity, so combination fixtures were sold to ensure that light would still be available even if the electric went out, which happened frequently.

Polished Brass Leg Tub Enclosure Set

I absolutely love the way this looks in my new bathroom. I can't comment on how easy or hard the installation was, since I had it done professionally.

great hinges

I mistakenly ordered the brushed nickel hinges and called the company right after ordering to change it to the polished nickel hinges. They were awesome in correcting my order and I am thrilled with the quality! I am very impressed and will use them again. So happy I was able to match the hinges I already had for my camper.

Excellent product & customer service

Despite being backordered, I received my knobs with a fairly quick turnaround. They are heavy and well-made. I'm very happy with these in our kitchen!

Forest Green Glass Bridge Pull, Brass Base

PERFECT! I thought I was taking a risk buying from outside the country. I was wrong. The pulls are perfect, just what I was looking for. Makes my kitchen look good. Product, packageing, and shipping all done professionally. I would buy again no problem. Cheers, Jonn

Stunningly beautiful

Extremely pleased. We needed a narrow piece on the receptor side because of modern doubled glazed windows, and this fit the bill perfectly. Had to search a long time to find this piece and so glad I found it here, at last. Looks absolutely gorgeous and original in our Edwardian home. Highly recommend! Quality and function is outstanding. Had questions about the item and got prompt and thorough response; great customer service. Would gladly order again.

Glass Door Knob/Door Plate

Fantastic service, very easy to shop for antique and historic parts (sizes are viewable with the pictures!). Screws came with the door plate and made installation very easy. We are very glad these folks are in business. I will look for more historic parts for our 90+ year old house.

Kitchen faucet

I just finished installing the faucet and it's very nice. Beautifully machined. It works perfectly.

Wow factor

We bought an Art Deco vanity table, that had ordinary round brown wooden knobs. We replaced those knobs with these Bakelite knobs. The look now catches our eyes and has upped the Wow factor of the piece in our bedroom.
