Beautiful Genuine Antique English 'duplex' Turquoise Milk Glass Oil Lamp:
UNUSUAL AND BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE VICTORIAN DUPLEX
OIL LAMP c1890
WITH GORGEOUS GRADUATED TURQUOISE ‘MILK GLASS’ FONT.
I’m selling a collectable and beautifully-coloured
English oil lamp from around 1890-and in
full working order.
It makes a wonderful centrepiece and, like all oil lamps, it gives a beautiful soft light that adds atmosphere to any room.
This is a really striking and attractive lamp in
fantastic condition with a very unusual coloured font that graduates
from deep turquoise to milky white. The font has no chips or cracks and is decoratively moulded in a basketwork design.
The elegant upright stand is spelter, I think, with the look of bronze, and the base is shiny black ceramic.
There’s no maker’s mark on the base, but the screw fitting burner with twin thumbwheels is marked ‘Duplex’ ‘English Made’.
The glass chimney, also undamaged, is marked ‘Griffin brand Fireproof, foreign’
Dimensions: 58cm high , 17.5 diameter of base
Font size: Diameter approx 7-7.25" Sides of font: 4 panels each 3.75" wide, alternating with 4 panels 2"wide
Font circumference 21"
Font height 4"
Condition: Absolutely original and undamaged. Lightly cleaned but with all its
There is a shallow chip on the ceramic base at the very bottom edge where it stands on the table. It is all but invisible unless you look for it.
It has been in the same family for three generations and has been well looked after.
This is a really strikingly attractive item, ideal for lighting use or simply display and very desirable for antique collectors.
