Industrial Age Lamp

$2,065.00

This lamp is handcrafted with great care from various repurposed vintage and new industrial parts along with other gadgets and gizmos!

The “Locomotive” lamp features:

Antique locomotive type headlamp. This headlamp was manufactured by the Grouse-Hinds Company, Syracuse NY, established in 1897. Originally train headlights were fueled with kerosene, but the days for that type of headlamp were limited. Two Americans invented electric lamps. Charles Francis brush introduced his arc lamp and Thomas Edison invented his incandescent lamp. In 1881 the Westinghouse Air Brake company was reported to be replacing electric lamps in the place of oil lamps on most trains.

Antique Brass Steam Whistle. Manufactured by the American Steam Gauge Valve Co. Boston USA, in a bygone era.  Railway locomotives, traction engines, and steam ships were traditionally being fitted with a whistle for warning and communication purposes. Steam warning devices have been used on trains since 1833. This is an awesome unique steam whistle, converted for use as the light switch!

 The Industrial Gear used for this lamp base is indicative of gears that are a result of the industrial revolution beginning in the 18th century.
