Antique Hobbs Brockunier 341 Snowflake Sapphire Blue Opalescent Glass Oil Lamp

Antique Hobbs Brockunier 341 Snowflake Sapphire Blue Opalescent Glass Oil Lamp
ANTIQUE HOBBS SAPPHIRE BLUE OPALESCENT NO. The pattern is referred to as "Snowflake", manufactured by Hobbs, Brockunier & Company in Wheeling, West Virginia during the 1880's Hobbs No. The font is mounted on a tall brass pillar stem with a marble base (likely not its original configuration).

The antique brass 2-line collar is #1 size (7/8 inside diameter). A hand lamp with the Hobbs Snowflake design is pictured on page 104 in the book. Oil Lamps II - Glass Kerosene Lamps.

With the chimney in place, the lamp stands about 18 3/4 tall. With the chimney and burner removed, the lamp stands about 11 1/8 tall to the top of the collar.

The opalescent font is approximately 4 1/2 wide. I'm including a period-correct antique chimney with a pie crust top. The font is guaranteed to have been made by Hobbs during the 1800's and is NOT a modern remake.

Condition of this antique lamp is EXCELLENT. The font looks fantastic with no chips, cracks, fleabites or other damage to report.

The brass stem is slightly off center on the base but also in great shape. The chimney is undamaged, except for a few scratches.

The plaster attaching the collar and font looks fairly new, suggesting that the lamp was refurbished at one time. The underside of the marble base has some remnants of green felt that was once attached.

Overall, this antique lamp looks fantastic and displays beautifully. Please take a close look at the many photos I've provided and judge condition for yourself.
