From the bottom of the feet to the top of the chimney the lamp is between 18 and 19 inches tall.
According to research done by a fellow eBay member this is a specimen of a rare WAS Benson reading lamp dating circa 1910, for a similar specimen please search British Museum exhibit number 1982,0108.1. It is very difficult to date the lamp exactly. We cannot guarantee that the lamp still works other than the wick turner; the adjustment mechanism on the hood is also quite worn so it might not allow for all the various options comfortably (i.e. it slips).
Cost of postage is £8 due to size of item (also the chimney will need to be double boxed) but this can be waived for any willing to collect the item.
