John Ford candlesticks
« on: January 30, 2018, 10:21:23 AM »
Whilst researching a glass candlestick for a friend who's just bought a female figurine one which I believed has been attributed to John Ford's Glassworks Holyrood I accidentally came across these http://www.onlinegalleries.com/art-and-antiques/detail/a-pair-of-antique-victorian-glass-oil-lamps/225288 I have never seen anything like these before and wonder if the are original or a marriage...would be interested to hear anyones thoughts. I have contacted they dealer and am awaiting a reply.

I have had a reply from the gallery.... :o      Dear Ms Evans,

Thank you for your enquiry on our pair of Victorian Glass Oil Lamps, and for the information provided regarding John Ford Glassworks. I can certainly see the similarity to other etched glass works attributed to them.

Please find enclosed an image of the pair of oil lamps, along with a description and dimensions for your convenience. In our opinion these are how they were originally made.

The price is 6,000 for the pair and they are currently on display in our Kensington Church Street showroom where you would be most welcome to view them in person. We are open from Monday to Friday 9.30 am 6 pm, Saturday 9.30 am 4 pm and Sundays by appointment.

Well brass is very easy to polish up like new so not concerned about that really...just chatting to another collector in Australia who has a pair of these one of which she originally bought with an oil lamp fitting which she removed. The plot thickens.

Hi Simba, please repost the "pk" link as the one you give, and which is attached to the preceding dots, does not work.
