Consolidated Miniature Oil Lamp-Decorated Opaline Cosmos - image 1 of 16

This particular lamp was produced by the Consolidated Lamp and Glass Co of Coraopolis, Ohio. The company originally formed in Fostoria, Ohio but two years later the factory burned, hence the move to Coraopolis. For many years this company was known for producing lamps and lighting fixtures. A popular style they are famous for was the colored cased glass of which they made several patterns of miniature, full-size and hanging lamps. These miniature lamps have become a prize in the collecting world. Several reasons can attribute to this popularity, one being their age and the fact that many have lost or damaged parts. Another would be the miniature size which they were used for lighting back at the turn of the 20th century. This miniature has the well known EAPG pattern called cosmos. When Consolidated Lamp produced these miniatures in the white opaline color with decorated blooms and rim of shade, they produced a beautiful piece. This style is usually found in tablewares, tumblers and water sets, but a little tougher to discover in the miniature lamps, especially those that are complete. A fine example indeed, this lamp stands just under 8 1/2” tall to top of frosted chimney and measures approximately 4 1/2” across the top floral shade. The lamp is in excellent antique condition, showing no major damage or repairs. I will not rule out some minor nibbles on the top rim and bottom rim of the shade or possible minor coloration patina of the brass parts constituting the burner. A wonderful example to highlight any end table. I have provided a number of pictures for your viewing.
