This Beautiful and hard to find Antique Victorian Messengers Duplex Oil Lamp with Tulip Etched Green Shade is in excellent condition. When I took it to my lamp guy to get it in working order he said that he had never seen one like it in 50 years of working on lamps. The way the wicks were done (see Pics) were the first he had seen (with looped middle wick). This Messenger Oil lamp has the original lever lift duplex burner with working snuffers. Marked Messenger on wick wheels and burner top- it has a messenger patent collar (see pics) with graduated green tulip etched glass shade (many bubbles in the glass). It also has a Griffin chimney -does have one small chip (shown in pics) It has a weighted brass base to keep it from turning over and has new wicks. Cut glass thumbprint font which does have one small chip on a bottom thumbprint (see last photo) but it is hardly noticeable. Fully restored and working condition. Measures 21 ¾” tall with a shade diameter of 9 ¼”.
