This is a very unusual antique paraffin / oil lamp.

It is a great decorator's item for a period Victorian or Edwardian interior.

The base section of the lamp features a pressed or moulded Flint glass fish - which is set onto a circular domed base covered in fluted ridges. The fish balances on its head and twists gracefully in an S-shape. A brass fitment rests on the fish's tail which is the anchor point for a clear oil reservoir or font (with slice cut stars as decoration).

On top of the glass oil reservoir is the brass oil burner section and gallery. There are a pair of finger dials for turning the wick up and down - these are marked: MESSENGERS DUPLEX PATENT. There is no wick at present - but you could easily source one and install this yourself.

There is a clear glass funnel, as well as a globe shade. The shade is made of clear and frosted glass with an acid-etched floral design.

More photographs can be provided on request to potentially interested buyers.

Dimensions: Overall height including the funnel is 26 inches. The diameter of the base is 6 1/2 inches. The diameter of the shade is 7 inches.

There are no damages - and as you can from my photographs it is a very attractive lamp. This lamp has always been well cared for - and has been in my own collection for over 30 years. It is certainly most unusual and I haven't found another quite like it.

Sadly, I would not be able to post this item outside of the UK. The postage quoted here is for Parcelforce48 courier service. Tracked and signed for.
