Few people have any experience with candle lamps. This particular one was invented by Palmer in England in the early 1840's. It is an incredible device. There is a metal tube inside into which is placed a candle of very wide dimension. A spring below it pushes the candle upward as it burns until the entire candle is consumed. The design of the candle lamp is quite beautiful with its white cut to blue glass shaft and gilt bronze base. But the crowning glory is that wonderful handblown and engraved glass shade. It is an impressive 28" in height and really makes a statement. This exact candle lamp is pictured on page 206 of the definitive book on classical lighting "19th Century Elegant Lighting" by Gerald Gowitt.
It is in original condition and would be a worthy addition to any collection of period lighting.
