The lamp stands an imposing 32 inches tall to the chimney top and is supported on a superb quality Corinthian column over a stepped base, that contains a large cast iron slug to prevent the lamp from being accidently knocked in use.
A cut crystal font has 14 flat cut panels separated by two circular gutters, the top one having a tiny flea bite sized chip to the edge. The font has a bayonet fitting collar that accomodates a Wright & Butler twin Duplex burner with a snuffer lever and a patented rising burner gallery to allow the lamp to be lit without having to remove the chimney or the burner.
It will be fitted with new wicks so that it can be in use straight away after soaking the wicks in fuel for a short while.
