This listing is for the complete lamp which is in excellent condition. The fount is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines. Commensurate with its age it does have a couple of the usual small air bubbles. None of which are broken.The surface is glossy showing negligible signs of wear and/or use. The solid brass collar is original and immaculate. The burner is in excellent condition and without cracks, scratches or splits.
There are a couple of tiny dints to the shade lip which when in situ face the back. All chimney prongs are present and damage free. The wick winder moves freely and has no excess movement. The chimney is in excellent condition with no cracks, scratches or scuffs.
It does have fleabites to the fitter rim whilst the top fire polished rim is damage free. The uranium/vaseline glass ruffled swirl shade. I do not know where this was manufactured and I feel it is not as old as the rest of the lamp. This shade will not sit directly on the shade lip as the fitter is too big. The gallery provided is not original French.
The eye catching ornate solid brass base is a late 1800's French candlestick. With the exception of a discretely placed drill hole in the candle cup it is in excellent condition. This could be swapped over, plugged and brass brazed or as seen in the photos left all original as it is not obvious when being displayed.
There are no dints, gouges, scratches and very little if any signs of wear/use. I have not polished this for quite some time so depending on your preference it may need a polish.
NB: I have not re-attached the peg to the fount as I had this fount held in place with blue tac while looking (without success) for a uranium fount to match the shade. The reason for these options is because depending on the shape and diameter of the replacement candle cup this peg may not fit and r.Emoving pegs can be tedious. Please let me know which way you want to go.
