1890 DIETZ Driving Lamp
Our 1890 DIETZ Driving Lamp is in amazing condition, so if you’re a collector, this one could interest you! Old Lamps & Things has one in stock (W3-12117) that says “Dietz USA NY” on the wick raiser of the nickel burner, and the patent date is Nov. 25, 1890. It has multiple ways to attach it, including a handle to carry it, a spring loader to clip it on, and two pole mounts! It also has a ruby red jewel indicator. This is the Real McCoy for the Real Collector!
For nearly 30 years, we at Old Lamps & Things have been restoring antique lighting, selling it locally initially, and online later. We usually maintain about 400 finished pieces in our inventory, including lighting from the 18th century (Betty lamps, rush lights, candle holders), through the 19th century (kerosene lamps, gas lights), and into the 20th century (gas/electric fixtures, electric lamps, mid-century lighting, etc.). Not all of them are featured on our new website yet, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, please contact us. In addition to restored lighting, we’ve also begun to list some of our unrestored lighting for our fellow lighting dealers and the do-it-yourselfers out there who have a certain look in mind. Please browse our website, oldlampsandthings.com, or call us at 860-655-6507.
