Antique Spelter Lamp Onyx Stem

Product code - 0352
Sold on 27th October 2012

There is virtually none of the original finish left on this antique spelter lamp. This is not an uncommon occurrence with spelter, especially if the previous owners have been a little too zealous with their care and attention. Diligent cleaning and polishing over the last one hundred plus years is the most likely cause of the loss.

Now, the ornate spelter has been polished to a soft shine and then lacquered to preserve the finish.

As a result, the polished spelter parts of this kerosene banquet lamp sit very nicely with the onyx stem and nickel font.

The font is complete and in good working order including a wick and a new chimney.

The glass of the vintage globe shade has the inverted thumbprint pattern and is flashed with ruby glass over clear.

The overall condition of the antique spelter lamp is very good to excellent and it will be sure to make a lovely addition to your home or to your collection.

Height to the top of the chimney – 77.5cm (30.5″)

Height to the top of the shade – 71cm (28″)

Diameter of the globe shade – 20cm (8″)

Width of the base – 18cm (7″)
