Eli Griffiths Spring Mounted Rear Steam Roller / Traction Engine Paraffin Lamp For Sale

Eli Griffiths Spring Mounted Rear Steam Roller / Traction Engine Paraffin Lamp

As part of a clear-out of bits which are gathering dust, I am selling this uncommon Eli Griffiths & Sons sprung rear paraffin lamp, which is ideal for a steam roller, traction engine or similar.

As you can see from the pictures, the lamp is in need of minorrestoration - however it is a very sound and straight lamp with no rot, and light surface rust only. The only missing pieces are one bolt for the bottom of the spring gear andthe actual coil springs themselves. It would probably be most sensible to replace the wick holder with a new one as the current one is not in the best of shapes, but the paraffin tank itself is very straight. Unfortunately, the front red glass is cracked vertically in one place, but the other two glasses are in very good condition and the brass edgings are all sound and damage free.

I was intending to restore this lamp, and it would not take much, but I just don't have the time so it has to go. Realistically, a few tinkering jobs and a coat of paint and you will have a very nice lamp ready to use.

It stands 11" tall to the top of the handle, and the front lens is 4" diameter.

If you have any questions, please ask. Worldwide postage at cost. UK P&P will be £10.
