lamp2  
i have a brass lamp that looks like it was an oil or kerosene lamp that was converted into an electric lamp.it has a nice patina. stamped on bottom is "  PAT.D.MAR.19.1895   ". on the oil/kerosene basin cap is stamped "  AT,D JUNE.16.1891  " . I don't know anything about it. It was purchased at a second hand store.

Answer
Hi Terrynce, The foot of the lamp is no doubt Bradley & Hubbard. I am having a hard time figuring out if this is a " frankenlamp" or an actual "off the line" model. I am doing a benefit auction for my local fire department tomorrow, but will be glad to devote some more time it afterwards. Will followup with additional info.
Talk to you soon-
