This is a nice example of an old railway oil lamp in original condition complete with reservoir with burner & wick as used in the steam times on the British Railway system as per the photos , a BR guards handlamp. It stands 270mm above the hoop shaped handle the body is aprox 115mm diameter. It has the reservoir and the brass lamplite burner and the reflector. It has all 3 of the aspects - red - blue (for green light) & the clear section.The bevelled lens to the front is undamaged within the brass bezel needs polishing (I leave that to you). Hinged front opening with brass slide fixing and the rear sprung clip to hold the rotating section in place. This lamp wants for nothing. It is original but seen little use and would grace any Railwayana collection.
