Old Miners Lamp Brass & Iron , Lovely Untouched Condition Rockingham Barnsley:
A quite superb un-touched lamp .
This came from Rockingham Pit,Barnsley.
The base unscrews easily enough and then the middle section also unscrews with the glass piece and the mesh gauze.
There is no makers name visible , lots of coded numbers and patents .
I think the lower pieces are Brass and the upper Iron ,
Approx sizes as follows ,
top to bottom - 255mm
across the base - 86mm
across the top - 75mm
The markings on the glass piece are , 5x1/4 , BRITISH MP , 59 1/2 , P.L.C.1 .
Just above the glass piece, the fitting is marked PATENT No 4 . 62 .
The base ( the unscrewed bit ) has various markings ,
these look like 729729 156 , and across the othe side PLL .
The centre brass piece has markings which read 784 570 ,
The only other faint markings are PATENT **** these are located on the brown upper piece.
This lamp has not been cleaned , polished , tested , repaired or seen for that matter by anyone for the best part of 40 years .
Any questions please dont hesitate to ask .
