Merryweather Horse Drawn Fire Engine Lamp
2016, (pic 1), A Merryweather lamp that was found lighting the porch by someones front door. Purchased from the home owner i removed the electric light bulb and old brass fitting and amazingly the chap still had the original oil burner that is yet to be fitted. The only other one i have seen is the one i bought off e-bay recently which unfortunately is the same side! The Fire Brigade Society book/reprint of the Merryweather catalogue shows the same pattern of lamp.
