 21261804721241870 Antique Victorian Brass Student Oil Kerosene Lamp

mkhda Store Antique Victorian Brass Student Oil Kerosene Lamp~NR Up for auction is this very rare old student lamp. It measures 19.5" to the top of the chimney and is 18" wide. This lamp was never converted to electric which is a rare find...many were. It is made of brass. The shades are pressed glass and colored cranberry. The two burners are functioning and I could not resist lighting them. In the photos you can see a warm red glow given off by the shades. There are two thumb screws on the two arms that allows the lamps to pivot. There are two coronet burners. The thumb screw for one burner has written on it PV and there is an anchor. The other thumb screw has writing that I could not understand. I have taken photos of both. With regard to quality I can only find a few issues. There is a small gash in the brass stem. Approximately 0.25" please see photos. There is some slight indentations to the brass stem most likely from common use and it is not distracting. All said a remarkable old student lamp that has survived the years well that you may want to consider for your collection or to be re commissioned for use.I will start the auction with a low starting bid with no reserve.Thanks for viewing! Our Return Policy: We strive to represent every item we sell accurately with photos and detailed written descriptions. We understand that seeing and reading about an item on the internet is never quite the same as being able to examine the item in person. So to help you make a confident decision we offer a 100% Unconditional 3-day Money Back Guarantee that you will be pleased! Our Auction Policy: Almost all of our auctions start at $9.99 with no reserve. This is intentional. We would very much like to create as much as possible a “real auction” letting the market determine the value. We do not shill or protect our auction sales. With this in mind it is not possible for us to determine the cost of insurance until after the sale is over. PLEASE DO NOT PAY FOR ANY ITEM THAT YOU HAVE WON UNTIL AFTER RECEIVING THE INVOICE FROM US. NOTE NEW POLICY CHANGE: Please be aware that eBay has removed the insurance calculator from all listings. In order to protect the money you have spent with us we need to add insurance at the end of the sale. The invoice sent to you after the auction will include insurance. Be assured that it is not our goal to “gouge” our customers but merely to protect your investment. Our insurance charge is taken directly from the USPS rates. Thank you for your understanding as we make this new transition. Final Invoice: Please be aware that the final invoice consists of three items: the USPS cost, insurance & handling fee (low cost fee that enables us to purchase quality shipping materials). SHIPPING COSTS WITHIN THE USAIf your shipping cost seems high please contact us. At times the shipping calculator is not accurate. In addition, depending on the size of the object and where you live it may be possible to ship via a flat rate box. Unfortunately, flat rate boxes are not always the cheapest way to ship! SHIPPING COSTS OUTSIDE THE USAIf your shipping cost seems high please contact us. As with shipping in the USA the calculator is not always accurate. Shipping outside the USA must be handled on a case by case basis. Many countries have limitations as the size of the package and weight. Also it may be possible to use a flat rate shipping box.
