Description


These exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver table lighters have been realistically modelled in the form of nautical port and starboard ship lamps/lanterns.


The plain quadrant shaped bodies of these antique table lighters are each embellished with an applied banner depicting the elucidating engraving 'Starboard' to one and 'Port' to the other.


The ornamentation to the body incorporates a curved glass panel to each; this panel reflects the details of the lanterns lens.


Each impressive novelty silver lighter is surmounted with the original hinged cylindrical cover, allowing access to the wick.


The cover of each lantern is fitted with a hinged hallmarked carrying handle.
