Antique Banquet Lamp Cranberry Swirl Font Converted Oil Lamp Antique Wright & Butler Lamp Banquet Lamp Brass Corinthian Column Lamp Base For sale is a Victorian Wright & Butler converted old Banquet oil lamp, sits on brass Corinthian column style pedestal with a fancy embossed brass base stand. It has a swirl cranberry font and comes with a gorgeous acid etched old shade which is my favorite globe and difficult to part with.The globe has 3 patterned cartouches. The lamp operates byway of an inline cord switch, works as shown in photos.
There may be a photo with a clear chimney, it doesn't fit in gallery, I don't have a clear one. I always used the frosted one. Stands 33" tall up to the chimney, 24.5" to top of socket, the base is about 6" square and the shade is 4" fitter, 7.5 tall.
This is about 100 plus years old and will show signs of wear as to be expected. Shade is excellent age bubble imperfections (one with roughness to exterior). Condition-used, good overall age appropriate condition, wear commensurate with age, nothing offensive. Associated alterations, lacking burner due to electrical modification. Typical signs of use and age, slight dimples on base.

Just about every lamp and/or lighting fixture that I sell at one time has been in use, they were manufactured for use in extreme conditions and subject to heavy use, these lights have survived! They have already proven their ability to stand the test of time......
This is a measure you simply will not find in ANY new light fixture made today. The originals of what others copy today. Vintage light fixtures increase in value as the supply is diminished. I try to give the best quality and best service possible. I have many years experience in sending fragile goods through the post and take pride in my packing, my treasures arrive in the same condition they left me.
Please review photos for a determination of condition also. I never charge for packing materials or for my time for packing (which is considerable when packing antique lamps & china).
