Item under consideration is a beautiful, elegant, very rare Antique (Late 1800s) Hand Decorated Mantle Luster Lamp. Pattern has Floral & Portrait Designs with Gold Accents, Scalloped Edged and long (9) brilliant-cut & notched Crystal Spear Prisms.
The Luster design was created by hand-cutting the White cased crystal to the layered transparent Cranberry crystal and adding hand decorated enamel floral and portrait figures. The brass base consist of a very detailed custom design. No chips nor nicks nor repairs. There is one missing prism. Very unique, no similar Luster available.Background: The initial fabrication design concept of the Luster was to accommodate candle light, because electricity was not yet commonly available at the time of fabrication. The center body of the Luster is hollow to accommodate water, which extinguished the candle when the flame burned low. This Luster underwent electrification in the 1930s. Part of modification was the addition of a custom made very intricately detailed brass base fitted to the bottom of the Luster. This added a uniquely attractive element to the Luster design(see photo #12). The total weight is substantial at over 8 pounds.
