Offered is an antique solid brass whale oil lamp by Gardun a French maker. It is solid brass with a classic form and shape. The burner is marked Gardun with some numbers and/or letters (rte SGDG ?). The wheel turns and the wick moves however this wick is large. The burner can be unscrewed from the lamp so the oil can be poured. It is in good condition with no serious dings or dents to the body whereas the base has some very minor bumps expected of a piece this aged. The very tip up at the wick looks to have a small dent that is easily fixed. We do nothing and leave that to the specialist. Less is Better. Please peruse the photos carefully and consider them in any decisions. The measurements are: 11” to the top of the burner and the diameter of the base is 4 3/8 inches. Please feel free to make inquiries. Thank you for your interest.
