The detail on the bicycle lamp on this paper clip is very nice. The lamp shown is an old, lightweight oil lamp made by the Seiss Mfg. Co. of Toledo Ohio. The top and bottom have a flowing art nouveau design. It appears to be made of brass and the design is probably acid etched. I don’t find any maker on the metal clip but I believe it is from the early 1900’s.
It measures about 2 1/8” at the widest point and about 2 5/8” long and the spring works well. Otherwise it is in good condition but the background of the design was probably much darker originally. On the back the finish shows some oxidation and wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
