By: John Hogan

This Wonderful Victorian Oil Lamp Brass Wall Bracket is a Real Treasure! It has a Majestic Presence that guards the guiding light of the household. The theme for the design more than likely has been taken from Grecian Mythology.

It has been exquisitely executed on solid brass. This is an ideal decorator piece to catch a glimpse into a sentiment of the past! This piece can most certainly add a romantic charm to any country cottage especially during Winter Season!

One can just imagine the ambiance of the Victorian Era! Just imagine no electricity! Well, this is how people lit their households, by kerosene oil lamps that sat in these wall brackets. The atmosphere and glow generated by such lighting techniques most certainly added to the family charm, closeness and warmth whether it was in the living room or large kitchen, where neighbors, friends and relatives gathered for conversation, fun and laughter as the coal stoves heat their houses and fireplaces were aglow with crackling birch logs. The aroma of fresh bread baking in the oven, the smell of birch billets burning in the fireplace, sleigh bells ringing and horses prancing in the snow outside- all which lent an air of Victorian sentiment as each room was aglow with such wonderful lighting as the nights turned into days and days into years and eventually to our current times of electrical lighting. Such an atmosphere of charm and tranquility is but a memory to some of us now and unfortunately no memory for the young of today. So if you acquire this piece you can begin to capture some of the romance and fantasy of cherished Victorian Times. Take a trip into the past or a little stroll down memory lane!
