  • Forest Fire Motion Lamp: Marked 1949 A.B. Leech with various patent numbers at top of the paper insert. This plastic, 9.25" tall lamp is pictured in Animated Motion Lamps/ Montgomery on page 30. When on the fire motion actually looks like a fire. The small cylinder is the inside motion heat cylinder which is in excellent condition. It is marked Copyright 1950, A. B. Leech. This lamp is in very good working condition. It is slightly dented at the seam. This is from years of normal use and does not detract from the appearance. SOLD

    The following information was emailed to me: Your lamp was manufactured by the Gibraltar Electric Clock Company of Jersey City, New Jersey. A company noted for its zinc "slush cast" clock cases and lamp bases. This company connected to numerous other companies produced lamps and clocks from the late 19th century until the middle of the 20th. In its latter years it produced carnival ware for side show games. The art work on your lamp and that of other Gibraltar lamps and clocks are very appealing to buyers of today since the art is so very representanal and what buyers today call retro charm.
