18th Century Pewter Figural Whale Oil Lamp
$2495.00

This late 18th century to early 19th century whale oil lamp measures approximately 11 inches tall by 4.5 -5 inches in diameter at it's widest points.

It was crafted in pewter and is Swiss or Austro Hungarian in origin, as it was acquired with a set of very similar figural Swiss candlestands with readable Hallmarks dating to about the same time period. Even so, this oil lamp is not marked or the marks have worn off over the centuries.

It consists of a standing figure in 17th-18th Century costume, holding up a four spigot oil font. The figure wears a cap with a crossed hammer insignia on it (partially obscured by wear)

It is signed with a date and initials on the base (18 GPP 27) which translates as GPP 1827.
