January 14, 2017
Bozeman, MT, USALive Auction
Description: This is an excellent early old West Buffalo head glass oil lamp. The early glass oil lamp shows three Great American Bison Buffalo heads accenting the piece. The glass is purpling from age and has created a very light lavender color. Oil lamps and other Buffalo pieces similar to this would have been seen in such historic Old West saloons and hotels like the Irma in Cody, Wyoming (established by Buffalo Bill Cody of the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show). It is in good condition for its age, but does not have a chimney. It measures 6 3/4" D x 13" H.
