Very Early Humphrey Lanterns, Matching Pair

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This matching pair of mid-1800s gas lamps have carefully converted to electric. We take the time to do it correctly and not loose the lamps character. Each lamp takes 4 candelabra bulbs. Both are signed on the brass and still have all the original glass. Amazing when you consider how delicate a lamp this is. They are being sold as a pair for one money.
