Large Blue Moulded Glass Font For English Duplex Oil Lamp With Brass Fittings:
Up for sale is this superb blue-turquoise opal glass oil lamp font for a duplex oil lamp . Typical Victorian or Edwardian shape executed in glass with a moulded pattern which was highlighted with painted / enamelled decorations .
Some wear or fading to the painted decorations but not obvious or detrimental to appearance.
This is a big font , just over 6&1/2 inches max diameter, and 6&1/2 inches total height.
Complete with brass fittings, top collar has the standard 'screw Duplex' collar, 39mm / 1&1/2 inches thread diameter. The bottom screw / undermount is the larger 'English No 10' size with threads 23mm external diameter.
There are no cracks, No chips and NO nasty stains to the font, and no splits or corrosion to the brass fittings. One tiny dint to the bottom of the thread, but doesnt stop it screwing into a column. Several very small raise 'pinpoint' marks to top face of the burner collar, entirely hidden when a burner is screwed in . There are a couple of grit spots and glass 'seeds' in the glass, from manufacture, typical of old glass .
Nice font for a large column or base .
A rare example for the collector ! Will be carefully packed !
