My name is Myles Bevis and over the years I've become an expert
in salvaging long forgotten antique oil lamps.
And I’m delighted to say that now many are again enhancing
the rooms of discerning homemakers all over the globe.
The Oil Lamp has become hugely collectible UK and Worldwide.
A generation or so ago, when electricity was a novelty an enormous
amount of these beautiful paraffin lamps were thrown out, commissioned
to the shed or attic, or even worse converted to electricity by
drilling through wonderful cut glass reservoirs and fine brass stands.
I've found lamps covered in cobwebs in attics, garages, cellars, you name it.
I remember a grimy black antique thing lying
on a shelf in a stables saddle room. This cleaned up as a fantastic
amber glass oil lamp. A poor forlorn Hinks ornate brass
oil lamp was the only occupant of a large stone barn to be
converted to holiday apartments and is now a collector's prize piece.
Famous names such as Hinks, Messenger, Young's and Evered
should have the chance to be seen again, and there is
nothing more splendid than a fine Victorian banquet lamp
as a dining table centre piece or taking pride of place on a sideboard.
