Antique Hinks Ceramic & Brass Base, Faceted Font and Duplex Burner Oil Lamp - WH Honey. A faceted glass font (with crack to the top) has a Hinks marked bayonet collar.
The duplex burner is marked with the Retailer WH Honey of Regent Street and the cone is marked "HINKS & SON PATENT". This lamp is made up of 3 Hinks pieces but I do not know the history of the lamp so I cannot guarantee that they have always been together. It will need a duplex chimney and globe with 4 fitter to complete. I have included a length on new 1" wick, I found the duplex 1 1/16" wick was a little too tight in the wick chutes.Due to size and weight this item will be sent by courier. Prices listed to Europe are for mainland Europe only and exclude the islands.
Size: Total height 43cm (17). Font outside diameter 14.5cm (5 3/4), Just over 3kgs in weight. I have included a number of photos and these probably describe the item better than I can and form part of the description.Everyone has different considerations when purchasing items and if you need any further information, please feel free to contact me and I will try to help. Condition: There is a crack to the top of the font but the font itself is still watertight. The base and burner have been polished in the past and there is historic polish residue.
The burner works well with smooth working wick winders and extinguisher, there is some missing cork to the underside and it does not tightly fit the collar. I have included a length of new 1" wick (1 1/16" wick was to tight in the chutes). The font and column are currently fixed together, and the font will not just screw off, I have not tried to dismantle the item. The font will need a clean as it is dirty on the inside. The base has a very slight wobble.
I will try to answer questions as soon as possible, but this will normally be in the evening. There are times where I may not be able to reply within 24 hours but I will reply well before the listing ends.
Larger or heavier items will be sent by courier. I will not post to Italy, Some of the Middle East, South America or Africa (Except South Africa).
