A Diminutive Argand

This diminutive Regency argand is still “in oil” and retains its original working parts.  It is offered in a beautiful two-tone gilt-lacquered finish.  The font has a pierced cast collar above the fluted section.  The base is supported by ball feet and decorated with cast repeating Classical designs and engine turnings.  A brass tag on the burner tube reads: GREENSILL/PATENT/460.STRAND.
