Electrified Kerosene Fluid Oil Lamp (ANT-246) - For Sale
Electrified Kerosene Fluid Oil Lamp (ANT-246)
A double-hanging kerosene fluid lamp from the late Victorian or early Edwardian era. Circa 1880 to 1900.
This quality light had a great reservoir in the center of the light which was easy to fill and long lasting. There is also some storage on each burner array.
Would guess that this light was popular in a retail shop environment since the burner size is large and the duration was significant. Other locations could be kitchens, restaurants, hallways or offices. Amazing that it has survived the various modernisations over the years.
We have not touched the original finish and it is still the way we obtained it. The oil burners have been converted to electric some years ago by others so the clear glass funnels are gone but the shades remain nicely in their original holders. We actually had to re-wire this light since the older conversion wiring was due for change.
Price: $595.00 which includes the shades. Shipping is extra.
