Oil Lamp

Solution Graphics


My name is Myles Bevis and over the years I've become expert in forgotten oil lamp rescue.
I've done my best to save antique oil lamps and
where needed carefully restore and renovate them so these treasures may
again enhance the rooms of discerning homemakers.
The Oil Lamp has become hugely collectible UK and Worldwide.
A generation or so ago, when electricity was a novelty beautiful oil lamps
were thrown out, commissioned to the shed or
attic, or even worse converted to electricity by drilling through
their beautiful cut glass founts and fine brass stands.
I've found cobweb covered lamps in attics, old oil lamps
in ancient garages. I recall a grimy black antique thing lying
on a shelf in a stables saddle room. This cleaned up as a fantastic
amber glass oil lamp. A beautiful forlorn Hinks ornate brass
oil lamp was the only occupant of a large stone barn to be
converted to holiday apartments and is now a collector's prize piece.
Famous oil lamp names such as Hinks, Messenger, Young's and Evered
should have the chance to be seen again!
A fine Victorian oil lamp looks splendid as a dining table centre
piece or taking pride of place on a sideboard.
