English Banquet Lamp

Product code - MC110313
Sold on 22nd March 2015

This English banquet lamp has a lovely, deeply coloured amethyst glass font. The font is decorated with hand painted floral motifs in three places.

The stem of the banquet lamp is a reeded brass column and it is set atop a brass and black glazed ceramic base.

The frosted open tulip shade is decorated with panels of daisies that compliment the floral decoration on the font very nicely. We are unsure of the age of the shade but it is not as old as the lamp so we will call it vintage.

The duplex burner with this English banquet lamp has no makers identification other than “Made in England Duplex” on both thumbwheels. Both the burner and shade gallery look to have some age to them but it is probably safest to call them vintage rather than antique.

The burner is fitted with wicks and a new round bulge duplex chimney completes the lamp.

Overall, this English banquet lamp is in very good condition. The hand painted decorations on the font are showing a little bit of fading but this is in line with normal wear and tear for a lamp of this age.

The lamp will look beautiful on a sideboard or as a centre piece on your dining table – especially if it has the light behind it to really show off the rich amethyst colour of the font.

Height to the top of the chimney – 64.5cm (25.5″)

Height to the top of the shade – 52cm (20.5″)

Diameter of the shade (widest point) – 18cm (7″)

Diameter of the font – 16cm (6.25″)

Diameter of the base – 18cm (7″)
