Other information from the donor.

This beautiful lamp is a converted oil lamp.  The donor estimated the oil lamp was from the late 1890’s.  It comes from a home in Paterson, NJ, that belonged to the family of Abram G Hopper, my great-grandfather, who built the Paterson General Hospital, the Library, several bridges, and MANY homes and commercial buildings there – he and his cousin owned a major construction company in the city. He also served a term as an elected Freeholder of Passaic County in the late 1800s.

The winner must pick up in State College.

The lamp measures 19 1/4″ from the base to the bottom of the finial.
