Rare Cobalt Blue 1901 Humphrey Gas Lamp, Electrified

From the start we were drawn to the simple elegance found in utilitarian objects. In addition there needs to be a unique and different feel to every object we pick. That’s what draws us to these gas age lamps. Not the ornate but the simple turn of the century examples found in stores, train stations and municipal buildings. We have rewired them to take standard candelabra size light bulbs. These lamps have a quality and charm all their own. The Humphrey Lamp Company has been around since 1901 and they are still manufacturing. Their large early fixtures were used to light streets in western U.S. towns. The rare blue porcelain lamp pictured has survived intact with all its original glass. The clear glass globe is still boldly signed, The Humphrey. We were able to electrify the lamp with three sockets. The deep pagoda porcelain shade has a 16 inch diameter and the lamp is 24 inches tall. The lamp shows an aged patina… 24″ x 16″ diameter… $1400
