An antique Oil lamp dating from approximately the late 1800's and early 1900's, which is denoted by the use of clay to 'glue' together the copper and glass parts. Its old age is also characterised by the dual wick burner it uses, which is similar to the 'Duplex Two Flat Wicks'(Here it is the Duplex Linden) patented by Hinks in 1865.There are two fitters, one as a fireguard, and the second is a decorative shader with floral designs. The floral designs on the larger fitter have been etched onto it. The fireguard is made of glass (smaller fitter) while the large pink fitter is made of Crystal. the base of the lamp is made of black ceramics which has a slight crack onto it, an origin defect. This lamp has a slight tilt to it since it was handmade, thus its height is not fixed, the variation in the height however is very slight.
