Drop In Fount Brass
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.
tastefully designed brass stand is in fine condition and supports
a shaped brass cup to receive the glass fount.
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.
knobs have 'Messengers Patent Duplex No 2' on the ceramic discs
and the signature is also on the connection collar.
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
oil lamp in good working order.
Height to top of chimney 21½”
for lamp and shade £397
