A fabulous Arts & Crafts paraffin lamp  with the Youngs* patented design. 

The tripod base has that lovely organic quality typical of the Arts and Crafts  movement with animal and plant forms combined .  The cast brass would have been silver plated and is now beautifully worn giving the whole piece a wonderful faded elegance to it. 

Height : 44 xm. 

*A contemporary of Faraday , Scottish chemist James Young patented and started one of the first factories to make paraffin oil from shale.
