Description

    1876 Hartford Club Baseball Lamp. A tremendous vintage find of the highest order, this lamp with baseball figurine was created in 1876. Dating back to the early 1870s, the Hartford Baseball Club was one of the earliest professional baseball teams. The year of this fine piece's construction was also the only year that the club played in the National League. While the lamp originally used oil for fuel, it has since been fitted with an incandescent bulb socket. The bronze figurine is of a period specific baseball player with "HARTFORD CLUB" amply appearing on his belt. While a bulb is not included, the lamp does include the globe over the socket fitting. Measures about 10" high, 16" with the globe. Condition is exceptional considering the age of this rare piece of vintage baseball history.
