Benson & Co Victorian Oil Lamp and Shade. I have for sale this absolutely stunning and very rare 2 burner W. This is in remarkable condition considering it's age.
The beautiful porcelain font has really vivid and striking colours, which compliments the shade completely. It is very rare to find a WAS Benson oil lamp with a porcelain font, they are usually in copper and brass.
The solid brass stand that the font sits in is very heavy and solid. It is also portable because you can use the lamp without the stand as it has a flat bottom which again, is very rare to find. Apart from the oil mechanism which mentions the maker, there is no mark on the lamp itself or the holder.
I've only ever known this as shown on my listing. The chimney is very good, with no chips, cracks, nibbles or fogging whatsoever. Height from base to top of chimney 56cm. Font 18cm wide, 9cm high. Shade 20cm wide, 18cm high.
