Tonight we are listing for sale another item from my Grandfathers estate and what we have here IS OLD ORIGINAL 1890's JB COLT ACETYLENE GAS LAMP WITH CAGE.......THE JB COLT CO. STARTED MAKING THESE LAMPS IN 1891 AND WERE EVEN USED BY SOME OF THE U.S. MILITARY AND OUR SOLDIERS DURING WW 1......

These lights can still be found sometimes, but when you do find them, they are always missing parts or the cage, but this one looks to be complete, as I see the starter & flint, the gas line, the adjuster, the globe and wire cage.....
This piece would look great in any Victorian Home and with a gas line, could probably still be used......
To save on shipping the new owner is welcome to pick up this lamp at my home in Hemet, Calif....OR....will pay shipping of $27.85 anywhere in the lower 48 states, with overseas shipping to be determined by location.......

* Good Luck and Thanks for reading this *
