A fabulous wall-mounted sconce oil lamp in fantastic condition. The swing arm bracket shows exceptional quality of casting, with fine naturalistic detailed flowers, leaves and swags. The original funnel and clear glass font are in good condition with no cracks. The swing arm works beautiful without being too stiff or too loose. This is a fine and rare item, as all too often with this type of oil lamp, only the bracket remains. We think it is Continental. The glass funnel has a "Tchecoslovaquie" mark. A truly stunning example of Art Nouveau lighting.
• Overall assembled height: 55cm/21 ¾ “
• Length of extended swing arm: 31cm/13”
• Font diameter: 10.5cm/4”
