Stunning Antique oil lamp standing 59cm tall overall. The lamp was made by Defries in the 1880s and consists of a brass egg shaped reservoir that slots neatly into a substantial brass basket. The basket takes the form of three tree branches that emanate from a circular stepped base.
The reservoir has a heavily chased and ornate floral. Decoration that encircles the body both top and bottom.The lamp has an integrated central draught burner patented by Louis Sepulchre in the 1880s and is marked thus to the top. Can't be sure if it has the correct flame spreader. The wick winder turns freely and is marked "Defries Safety Lamp".
An anchor brand flat bulge chimney is fitted but no wick remains. A good quality 10cm gallery supports an acid etched tulip shaped shade with amber frilled rim and floral decoration that ties in beautifully with the chased font.
As per my photographs, the lamp has one prong missing from the burner. More oil lamps in'Sellers other items'. This item is in the category "Collectables\Lamps, Lighting\Lamps".
