Industrial Style Lamp
Beautiful, newly hand constructed industrial style table lamp. The lamp features an original antique lantern made by Keystone Lantern Co. (called "The Casey") for the Pennsylvania Railroad. This lantern's extended glass globe is embossed PRR. There are markings on the top, although they are hard to read as age has worn most of the writing down. I believe the lantern is from 1902. More information can easily be found online.
I think the top was originally copper or brass, as the patina is now a lovely verdigris and rust. The body was most probably bright yellow, and that color has also aged and rusted, creating a beautiful, rustic finish. The wooden base is hand painted to mimic a rust finish, and embellished with a jute braided rope. It is completed with a beige burlap shade and a vintage brass finial. The lantern is fixed to the base with a couple of hooks, and would be easily removable, if that was desired. Truly one of a kind! 25 1/2"h x 15"w
