YOU ARE offerDING FOR A NICE DAVIS "BOSS R" MINE OFFICIAL'S RELIGHTER LAMP.

(THE SMALLER DAVIS "DWARF" SHOWN IN ONE OF THE sale PHOTOS IS NOT PART OF THIS sale. IT IS BEING saleED SEPARATELY ON E BAY AT THE MOMENT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING A LOOK AT IT.)

THE "BOSS R" FOR sale HERE STANDS JUST UNDER 10 INCHES (25.5cms) TALL, EXCLUDING THE HOOK &EYE.

THE LAMP HAS THE MATCHING NUMBER "22" ON THE BASE AND ON THE BODY.

THE LOCKING MECHANISM OF THE LAMP WAS THE MAGNETIC TYPE AND IS NOW DEACTIVATED. IT WAS HOUSED IN THE SMALL VERTICAL TUBE ON THE SIDE OF THE LAMP JUST BELOW THE GLASS.

THEBIGGER VERTICAL METAL TUBEON THE LAMPBASE, WITH A COVERING PLATEABOVE IT,LOOKS LIKE ALOCK, BUTIT'S THE EXTERNAL FILLER TUBE FOR THE LAMP'S FUEL CONTAINER.THIS WAS BECAUSE THE WICK ADJUSTER WAS OF THE THREADED TURNSCREW TYPE AND IT WAS MORE CONVENIENT TO FILL THE LAMP EXTERNALLY THAN UNASSEMBLE THE TURNSCREW MECHANISM.

THERE ARE MANY NICE ORIGINAL FITTINGS TO THIS LAMP. IT HAS A "SAVID" DAVIS LAMP COMPANY GLASS AND THEOUTER GAUZE IS MARKED "DAVIS DERBY" ON THE BRASS COLLAR.

ACTUAL POSTAGE WILL DEPEND ON THE FINAL sale PRICE AND THE BUYER'S CHOSEN METHOD OF POSTAGE SIGNED FOR & INSURED POSTAGE WOULD RANGE FROM UPWARDS.

I WILL BILL THE BUYER WITH THE EXACT POSTAGE COSTS AFTER CLOSE OF sale.

PLEASE PAY WITHIN 3 DAYS OF THE sale CLOSING.

GOOD LUCK WITH THE offerDING.
