Quality, ornate candle lit carriage lamp
Auld Curiosities is once again happy to bring a less common item forward, for your consideration. On this occasion it is a brass and glass carriage lamp with a quite ornate adornment of an eagle as the finial. The lamp-house is hexagonal enclosure which has 5 panes of glass and one side a polished brass as a reflector (this brass side also opens to provide access to the light chamber). Beneath the lamp-house is a longish, hollow brass tube which has an end-cap. The design suggests lighting would have been by candle or taper. This tube fits nicely into a brass fitting which would presumably be screwed to the carriage to hold the lamp in place The top of the lamp-house has swag adorned venting and as mentioned a decorative finial representing an eagle (Please see the images for details). This may well have been a light for a special carriage or even a hearse. The unit is 21.65” (550mm) in height.

Packaging and Postage
With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package. If satisfaction is still lacking then we will look to see whether our efforts have been inadequate for fair handling of an item and if it is found to be so we will refund the cost of the item. Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
