Very Rare 1800s Norfolk and Western Railroad Dining Car Double Chandelier

About

Few of these luxury class Victorian RR lamps still exist. Any remaining examples have found their way into museums. This was the type and quality of center lighting used in private luxury Pullman cars of that era. They were also part of the elaborate personal train cars built for The Rockefeller's and Vanderbilt's. This is a beautiful original double chandelier still retaining its original milk glass shades. An interesting detail are the brass match strikers on either side of the main tube. It was carefully wired to take a standard bulb. This lamp is signed N&W and was made for the Norfolk and western railroad. This is a nice piece of railroad history.
