This is an exceptional solid brass three arm kerosene oil fixture c. 1860, with jewels and spear prisms. This large fixture has pegged oil fonts with a tufted pattern on them, a rope twist central support arm with an ornate stamped break, and a very decorative stamped brass ceiling sheath which hides the ceiling hook. The light drops down to fill the oil fonts using a twist and pull mechanism at the bottom of the fixture. This light fixture is in original condition, we have not polished or wired it, but we can do either if you prefer, for polishing there would be an additional $250 upcharge, and for electrification there would be an additional $125 upcharge. Due to the size of this fixture it can't be sent via UPS but would need to be shipped via motor freight, or delivered or picjed up at our Rochester, NY location.
Dimensions: This light measures 26" wide at the widest point, and has approximately an 33" drop at the as shown but when pulled down using the twist and drop mechanism at the bottom, the total drop is 53-1/2".
