Messenger's Drop In Fount Brass Oil Lamp

Here is a beautiful and extremely heavy late Victorian table oil lamp. It's just been comprehensively cleaned and is in great pristine order for an item over 100 years old.

The tastefully designed brass stand is in fine condition and supports a shaped brass cup to receive the glass fount.

The burner is an exceptionally good Messengers bayonet duplex type having two flat wicks side by side with snuffer. The burner top rises to allow the wick to be lit without removing the chimney or shade. The wick winder knobs have 'Messengers Patent Duplex No 2' on the ceramic discs and the signature is also on the connection collar.

The globe shade is of a lovely clear glass with an etched leaf design with just the occasional glass bubble - typical of glass of that age. Just a few miniature usage nibbles to the base where it sits on the gallery, otherwise perfect.

A lovely oil lamp in good working order.
