Please read to see exactly what is included, international buyers please ask postage costs BEFORE placing a offer unless costs are stated in the listing as prices can be expensive.
Here we have a Victorian (or possibly earlier) column to take an oil lamp fount with a Hinks thread (I will include a Hinks undermount (not shown) that fits this perfectly, due to the depth of the socket some designs of Hinks's undermounts threads won't meet the thread in the socket the original fount can be seen to sit flush as the undermount goes right in, you will get an identical equivalent, see image, remember fount is not included!).
I was told this used to be a candlestick that was converted to take an oil fount but have no real idea, I think the seller may have believed this but I wasn't totally sold on that idea...although the thing is copper (rather than the usual brass) and very heavy (not just the lead-filling in the pressed foot), the stem appears cast as it is very cold and also heavy when laid pivoting on its side (to discount the weight of the foot) it does look more like Regency/Georgian candlestick.
Dimensions; 13 3/4" tall and 7 1/4" across the foot (diagonally).
Condition; no obvious damage, dents or other drama, the plating is rubbed on the high points showing copper through, worst worn areas are a patch on the socket and the waisted part under the bobeche or capital, column has such a bright lustre that this isn't immediately noticeable, there are silver polishes that can be found that put a coating of silver on the rubbed areas that can hide this if you search online.
###You are offerding for the column only, fount shown is for demonstration purposes only, it is available in another listing at the moment###

To note; I try to point out the most obvious flaws or damage I can see and to be as honest as I possibly can be, so that you are happy and content with your purchase, please understand that old items have a tendency to be slightly scuffed or marked in some way or another over years of use, items will more than likely never be 'factory fresh' unless stated, also old items especially where flammable liquid is concerned are used at your own risk, I would never list anything that I believed to be unsafe, however I cannot guarantee that the items are 100% safe, I also cannot guarantee that the purchaser will use said items properly and in a safety-conscious manner, have a good look at the pictures and if there are any questions or concerns that you may have, please do not hesitate to email me, further pictures on request.
Please only offer if you are happy with the postage price, I pack to a high standard and use materials that are not cheap and I need to replenish them often.
Please note; postage price includes proof of delivery (signature).
