Joseph Lucas WW1 Silver King bicycle oil lamp
Nice original patina and hasn’t been over polished or repainted. The lens and the reflector are as good as you would expect for a 100 year old lamp. (Not cracked or damaged. Just with some loss of reflection)
The clasps, hinges and mount springs work. The lamp opens up to reveal the fuel reservoir and wick location.
I haven’t tested this lamp. I thought it looked nice and was appropriate for an older bicycle that I have. You see a few of these for sale. They vary enormously in price because the “cheaper” ones have damage or they have lost their patina because someone has either painted them or they have polished them to death.
It measures about 5 inches in height.
Viewing: Please come and check it over before you buy. It is at PE28, near St Ives in Cambridgeshire.
Shipping: I usually ship to most destinations. If you don’t see a price, please ask. Thanks. International shipping available.
Collection: If you don’t want it shipped, I have plenty of space. If you can’t collect for a while, it’s not a problem. However, I will need to be paid very soon after the sale. Thanks.
Payment: Good old fashioned money on collection is preferred. I can accept payment through PayPal or by bank transfer as well.
Import Taxes: Please note that IMPORT DUTIES are not something I can control. If you are buying from outside the UK, there is a chance that you will have to pay import taxes. Import taxes vary from country to country. If there are charges to pay, it is the buyer’s responsibility to research the cost and pay the duties. The price that you see on my advert is for the item and not the item plus whatever taxes might be due.
