Pittsburgh Lamp


Here is a very beautiful 1920's reverse painted Pittsburgh lamp. This is the very rare molded kiln slump and hand painted process Full of bright well coordinated colors with excellent artistry.This lamp is properly and has been identified in the L-W Better Electric Lamps of the 20's and 30's book page 75 (see picture). The lamp is approximately 20 1/2" tall x 8" diameter base. The shade is 16 1/2" extreme diameter x approximately 6 1/4" deep and the top fitter hole is 3 1/8" in diameter. The shade has beautiful climbing roses painted on the inside and the exterior is a rough sandy type texture and is in excellent condition with no chips cracks, repairs or paint loss. The base is in very nice original condition with minor paint losses but still looks beautiful. Also, it has been newly rewired with the correct dated brown cloth type wire and it all works very well.
