A10179
Price : £450.00
Circa 1900
Dimensions   70 x 70 x 275 mm         



An unusual late 19th Century German watch holder and night light in the form of a gas lamp post.  Cast square base and body. The square lamp at the top of the post with clear glass candle holder.  The cast hipped roof pierced to allow a small candle to burn inside.  Small wire hook just below the lamp to hang the watch. (Watch not included)


Signed       Erlag Bei E G Zimmermann - Hanau 11220

A most interesting and unusual piece.  It is doubtful that the candle would have lasted the whole night.  As a modern replacement a small LED could probably be used in its place
