This cast iron wall bracket oil lamp has the less common pear shaped font and font basket. Generally they are seen with a rounded, cup shaped form.

This style of cast iron lamp was popular as both wall lamps and chandelier lamps during the 1860s and 1870s.

The black painted cast iron frame is in very good condition. The bracket is also painted black and it has a very old repair where a break has been welded. The weld is sound and not visible when the bracket is fixed in place.

The clear glass font is in excellent condition without any chips, cracks or damage of any kind. It is fitted with a fairly old burner and a new wick and chimney.

Finally, a new reflector completes the antique cast iron wall bracket oil lamp.
