Ruby Glass Banquet Lamp

Product code - 0532
Sold on 11th October 2014

This is an English banquet lamp with a lovely, deeply colored ruby glass font atop a heavy brass base and reeded column.

The antique fluted opalescent shade is decorated with threaded cranberry glass around the rim. It compliments the lamp perfectly but it is doubtful that it is original to the lamp. Whilst it is from the same period as the lamp (circa 1900), the lipped fitter suggests that it may have originally been used on a gas lamp.

The duplex burner with this ruby glass banquet lamp has no makers identification and appears to be a later replacement. The shade holder however looks to be much older than the burner. It has two lugs and a thumb screw to hold the shade securely in place.

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

Overall, this ruby glass and brass banquet lamp is in excellent condition.

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 ruby colour of the glass.

Height to the top of the chimney – 70.5cm (27.75″)
