Here is a most
unique cast iron Dutch Whale Oil Lamp that has gold colored accents. It has 3 fonts and not only is it large it is very spectacular.
From the top of the ceiling rosette to the bottom this vintage cast iron oil light or oil chandelier measures 3 feet. From the center each "arm" comes out 2 feet. The interior diameter of each lamp globe ring is 11". Each oil font is a little over 7
The pieces that hold the globe rings are very ornate with gold colored accents and show a horse head and horseshoe, a cherub or water nymph character (mermaid) and a bird.
The oil fonts are made of white porcelain and the fixture is brass. The globe rings are a
light weight metal.
The only defects that I can see are 1 of the horse design globe ring holders has a small amount of rust, one of the cast iron pieces that holds the oil font has some interior surface rust, few scattered areas of very minor surface rust and on the center post there are 3 gold colored decorations and the very tip of one of the circle pieces has been broken off (you
can see it in the 4th photo above). The glass globes are missing and it has not been wired for electricity.
The globe on mine is white and is the original globe so I assume that white was originally on this light as well.
Please feel free to ask for additional photos, I
have dismantled the light fixture but I can get individual photos of pieces. All screws are present even though I did not screw down the globe rings in the above photos or tighten down any pieces.
