Rare Adams and Westlake Bow Arm Pullman Car Railroad Lamp

It’s rare when you have the chance to purchase objects from an individuals lifelong collection. The depth of knowledge and network of this important collector/expert can’t be duplicated. We had the opportunity to see these lamps first-hand and acquire some of the best examples. Thats why we closed shop for almost a week and drove half way across the country. Here is a rare early decorative train car lamps from this collection. Few of these luxury class Victorian RR lamps still exist. Any remaining examples have found their way into museums some time ago. This was the type and quality of center lighting used in private luxury Pullman cars of that era. They were also part of the elaborate personal train cars built for The Rockefeller’s and Vanderbilt’s. This beautiful bronze bow arm ceiling mount lamp is as scarce as they come. This is one of my favorite lamps . It was carefully wired to take a standard bulb. This is a nice piece of railroad history… 24″H x 14″W x 10″… $3200
