Seller: angdenhuf (685) 99.3%, Location: Statesville, North Carolina, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 302151916887 This item has been well taken care of. Part of an estate sell found packaged securely in an old box. The details of the metal portions are very pretty. Even the small screw heads are a floral, daisy design. There are a few bubbles in the glass; part of the manufacturing technique. There is a tiny black spec on the glass that may be a dot of paint; not sure. THE HUMPHREY is in frosted letters on one side. The metal globe seat appears to be copper from the color; covered with a dark patina over most of it. The seat is engraved: "THE HUMPHREY SYSTEM GENERAL GAS LIGHT CO. KALAMAZOO, MICH." On the other side of the seat, it is engraved: PATENTED DEC. 24th, 1901. OTHER PATENTS PENDING, U.S. AND FOREIGN". The small metal ring below the burner is engraved: WELSBACH TRADE MARK. That small piece also has a very pretty design on the bottom. The burner stem is also marked: TRADE MARK REGD, OCT.6.96. The swivel handle works well and the designs are pretty as well. There is a small piece of round wood inside the bolt where the burner sits; it helps to hold the burner and globe seat upright. It looks to me as if an original bolt is missing and someone has replaced it with another piece; I have no way of knowing for sure. Just want to make you aware of it. There are chips and nicks on the base edge of the globe where it is placed on the seat portion; see pictures The top of the globe is rough and has nicks too, mostly just a rough edge. The globe is approximately 9" tall; not including the metal band. The metal band is 1 1/2" tall. The globe is also approx. 9" across from left to right in the center ( widest portion ). The swivel arm is 10 1/4" in overall length. A block of wood has been attached for display but can be removed of course. I do not know if there is anything missing or if it actually would work. Selling "AS IS"; as an awesome display piece of history and a conversation piece. You will receive everything pictured. Please look at all pictures closely and ask any and all questions that you may have before bidding. I will be shipping this item with signature confirmation. Condition: Awesome antique condition., Color: Clear Globe, Brass Metal., Maker: The Hunphrey
