Antique Arts & Crafts Hinks/Messengers table oil lamp. In exceptional working condition, in Art Nouveau style, with large, heavy shade, Duplex burner and proper chimney. The shade is large, with thick, moulded cranberry glass - the cranberry colour darkening slightly toward the top, with an ornate, repeating Fleur de Lys design. Both top and fitter rims have rough edges, but no cracks or chips.The burner is a HINKS No. Lever Duplex, with bayonet fitting, a key riser, dangly snuffer, ornate gallery (13cm diameter), and wicks, all in full working order. The base is heavy brass, stamped MESSENGERS (who supplied Harrods) around the bayonet fitter above the font, the plain font held by three typically Art Nouveau outward curved supports that join the base to the font, with decorative finials, all of which are solid and firm, with no distortions. There are a few dinks to the base rim, as can be seen in the last photo. Apart from some tarnish, mainly where the burner has been used and the dinks, the lamp is in near-perfect condition.
85cm tall to the top of the chimney. The shade is 21cm tall, and approx.
22cm diameter across the widest part of the'belly', the top rim id 11.5cm diameter and lower fitter rim is 11cm diameter.
