Sunlight and Safety Lamp Company Limited (manufacturer)
Electric standard lamp (lacking shade), with telescopic stem, which allows the height to be adjusted. It is made of copper and brass, in a tripod form with splayed legs terminating in grooved hoof like feet. Arising from each leg is a rope twist strut which terminates in a motif similar to a half anthemion. Copper scrolls are fixed between the stem and the struts, the fixing points decorated with copper flowerheads. The brass stem is centred on a large six-petalled flower head which rests on a circular lobed and domed copper piece. The half anthemion motifs carry the impressed design registration number RD 309016, as do the undersides of the legs. The design was registered by the Sunlight and Safety Lamp Company Limited, Birmingham in 1897. One bolt fixing a strut to one of the legs has been replaced, and there is rusting to the underside of the base.
