very good 1920s Vintage zephyr cycle oil lamp
In original very good condition this 1920s cycle oil lamp is stamped ZEPHYR and I can find no other name stamps though I understand these were made by Powell and Hanmer.
The lamp has been vey well made with lots of "doors" giving access to the burner etc.
The chrome work is generally in good shape and would be relatively easy and satisfying to refurbish though a light clean would probably suffice.
I can find no issues with this lamp, other than the mounting bracket has some surface light corrosion and the tip of the lever at the back is broken off, otherwise a very good example of a ca 100 year old lamp.
