Duplex Banquet Lamp

Product code - 0660
Sold 20th Oct 2021

The simple style of this English duplex banquet lamp is the very thing that makes it so appealing. From the frosted shade and clear font to the reeded brass stem and stepped base, it has an understated elegance.

The facets in the glass of the font form a prismatic effect which is very attractive. The font also has a “spill rim” depression around the top. The purpose of this rim is to trap any kerosene that may be spilled when the lamp is being filled.

The lamp is quite tall, standing at 78cm (nearly 31 inches) overall. The stability of such a tall lamp is guaranteed by the inclusion of a heavy weight in the base. The 23cm (9 inch) tall shade has the perfect proportions for this lamp, giving it a well balanced look.

The lovely panels of cherubs that are featured on the shade further add to the elegance of this lovely antique banquet lamp.


Overall, this English duplex banquet lamp is in very good condition.

The glass font is in excellent condition without any stains or cloudiness. There are no cracks, bruises or damage other than two tiny fleabites on the outside of the rim. These tiny fleabites can be felt rather than seen and are only mentioned for accuracy.

The vintage shade is also in excellent condition. It has the expected roughness around the fitter and is free of any chips, cracks or damage of any kind.

The brass work is showing some signs of age and use. There is some mild pitting on the base and a small dent on one corner. There are also two areas on the lower part of the burner where the ribs have been pushed in slightly. This does not effect the burner in any way.

Finally, the lamp is fitted with two new wicks and a new chimney.

We are sure this lovely antique English banquet lamp will be a wonderful addition to your home or your collection.
