Description

Three Face Pattern Glass has a 140 year history in the USA. Originally designed and manufactured in 1878 by George Duncan and Son’s of Pittsburgh, PA, the elegant Three Face design features the figural face of a woman repeated three times. Three Face Oil Lamps are currently produced in the USA by Imperial Lighting Co. utilizing the old Three Face molds formerly owned by L. G. Wright and Aladdin Mantle Lamp Company.

Legend has it, as a young man and designer for George Duncan & Son’s, John Ernest Miller fell in love with a young lady by the name of Elizabeth Blair. The legend suggests John grew very fond of Elizabeth, later proposing marriage to her with a promise that if she accepted his proposal he would immortalize her in glass.

John and Elizabeth did marry and in 1878 John introduced George Duncan & Sons Three Face Pattern Glass # 400 which bears the likeness of John’s lovely bride, Elizabeth Miller.

Imperial Lighting Co. is pleased to bring Three Face Oil Lamps and related accessories back into production as a part of our specialty lighting and collectable glassware product line.
