Rare 1924 Tobacconist Lamp-Humidifier

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

I have never come across this unique lamp before. I understand they were used as a chandelier style light inside a walk-in cigar store humidor. The lamp is signed... Humidifier No. 714, Ingersoll Co. it has a motor and fan that can send a fine mist of water through 20 small jets. The jets sit around a nicely detailed milk glass lamp shade. Above the lamp is a 10 panel mirrored prismatic glass reflector shade. There is a grapefruit sized water tank that was used to feed the mister. Everything actually works the fan goes and you can feel air coming through jets. The water connection between the tank and fan were removed. I like the idea that it still works but do not want water anywhere near the electric and bulbs. It has the feel of a steampunk contraption and love it. We will never see another one.
