Consolidated Miniature Oil Lamp-Pink Cased Artichoke - image 1 of 16

This particular lamp was produced by the Consolidated Lamp and Glass Co of Coraopolis, Ohio. The company originally formed in Fostoria, Ohio but two years later the factory burned, hence the move to Coraopolis. For many years this company was known for producing lamps and lighting fixtures. A popular style they are famous for was the colored satin glass of which they made several patterns of miniature, full-size and hanging lamps. These miniature lamps have become a prize in the collecting world. Several reasons can attribute to this popularity, one being their age and the fact that many have lost or damaged parts. Another would be the miniature size which they were used for lighting back at the turn of the 20th century. The company evidently had several different molds for the artichoke pattern shade, as well as a number of different bases. This fine example has a squatty size globe shade exhibiting the artichoke leaves of the bloom. The base is square and both the base and globe have a pink layer of glass cased to an interior white opaque layer. The lamp measures 7 1/2” tall to the top of the clear chimney while spanning 3 3/4” across the slightly larger shade. The burner has the patent date Feby 27, 1877 on the wick adjusting knob. In excellent antique condition showing no major damage or repairs. I will mention, and as pictured on the chimney a mold line, possibly extended interior bubble is visible. I also pictured on the base as well as the shade swirling lines in the pink glass. They appear to be cracks, but under magnification they are part of the manufacturing process for this lamp and not post factory damage. These anneal lines often appear in early slag glass especially examples produced in England during the late 1800’s. A very fine, slightly smaller miniature oil lamp to light up the room. I’ve included a number of pictures for your viewing.
