An antique French oil lamp with font made by the Gien ceramic factory. Also marked J R Bec Rond Parisien. The ceramic font is painted with a well known cherub riding a dauphin Gien design inspired by the Italian faience designs. It is entirely hand painted and the base and top are brass or bronze.. It measures 12 3/4" tall and it is in good condition with no damage or repairs. There is some minor wear to the paint and some crazing. The knob turns easily. I don't know too much about oil lamps but I believe it is all original and in working condition other than missing the wick and the chimney.
