~ Evered & Co. Ltd. Silver Plated Corinthian Column Oil Lamp ~
A lovely quality and grand looking silver plated oil lamp by Evered & Co.
The lamp has a Corinthian style column with moulded leaf decoration to the top which sits upon a stepped square base.
It features a cut glass oil well and a spherical etched glass shade over a plain glass chimney.
The ‘metal’ parts of the lamp i.e. the base, column and burner are all of silver plated metal (brass?).
The collar, mounted just above the glass well is marked ‘Hinks & Son’s Patent’.
The burner and shade holder are both marked for ‘Evered & Co. Ltd. Patnet”,
~ Dimensions ~
The base measures 16cm (6 ¼ inches) square.
The total height of the lamp is 90cm (35 ½ inches).
It weighs 5.73 Kg.
The silver plating to both the column, base and burner/shade holder has some wear in parts revealing a brassy colour underneath.
The glass chimney is intact with no cracks or chips. The shade has a couple of small marks but is otherwise undamaged. The well has a
couple of flea bite chips but these are only visible upon very close inspection.
The top half of the lamp sits at a very slight angle.
Overall the piece is in a nice condition and is a beautiful item that presents very well.
