Full Details for Lot 215

Sale 2207 Lot 215

English Bronze Gasolier, Attributed to Thomas Messenger

second quarter 19th century, with distinctive hippocampus-molded arms, the reeded body supported on a leaf-molded standard decorated with dolphins and molded acanthus leaves, the top with an acanthus-molded canopy, set with frosted star-cut shades.
h. 40", dia. 31"

Estimate $1,500-2,500

**In overall very good condition. No sign of damage. It is electrified with the wiring running through the inside of the arms. Consequently, the gas keys have been drilled out to allow the wiring to pass through. The surface appears to be original with some possible minor touch-up. The top pipe just below the canopy is polished - not gilt. The shade rings also appear to be original. All of the sockets light up.

Sold for $4,500
