This antique parlor lamp or "Gone With The Wind" lamp by the Pittsburgh Lamp Brass & Glass Company (PILABRASGO) dates to approximately 1905. The lamp features top and bottom green glass with a light in both, and hand detailed decorations featuring allegorical figures and winged horses in a Neoclassical style.
The font and burner are 'Success" brand, stock parts for the PILABRASGO lamps of this time.
The top globe has a skillful repair to a piece of broken glass (see photo) and two long hairline cracks emanating from the same break (see photo). The lamp base has patina consistent with its age.
The fixture was electrified such that many of the original oil wick mechanisms still exist, and with a patch to the fount, could be turned back to an oil burning fixture.
