Tall without its glass lamp shade. It is questionable whether the burner is original. Firstly the glass well that contains the paraffin looks as though it has been replaced based on it being very clean and hence looks new? The lid of the glass well has a slightly different pattern and is darker than the body of the lamp.
However, the base of the lamp also appears to be darker, and therefore suggests that it could be the original. The burner itself screws easily into the lid and a new wick has been fitted. The thumb wheel to adjust the wick however is very stiff and it makes one question how someone has managed to fit it ready for operation.
The burner would appear to be original based on it having some age and the same material and colour as the gallery that surrounds it. The burner unscrews from the lid that is sealed to the glass well, and as it is a good fit it suggests that the burner and the lid are related and hence adds to the impression that they are part of the original lamp. Unscrewing the burner provides access to the glass well to fill it with paraffin. The lid is very tightly sealed to the glass well and as there are no cracks to the well it is unlikely that it leaks.
There is some Verdigris it is odd, but it is unlikely to be the result of any repairs as the areas that they can be found are not really damageable. Finally the glass shade is not original it does not fit snuggly so probably not worth including as part of the lamp. IT IS FOR SALE WITHOUT a GLASS SHADE.
