The library lamp dates to the 19th century . The duplex burner, which once was powered by a fuel such as kerosene, is now electrified. The overall structure is very complex and ornate. The shade is a good example: faceted glass jewels sit in a field of punch outs in the cast embossed copper and brass. Vines and leaves wrap naturally around the handles. And the cast iron footed base is copper plated. This early lighting device had its origin in Waterbury, Connecticut and its maker was Plume and Atwood.
