Superb Edwardian Bronze Theatre Cigar Lighter / Lamp.

A wonderful solid bronze of a young woman holding a lyre. This was originally a gas cigar lighter; it would have stood on the bar in a theatre or music hall. The gas would have passed through to a burner at the top and it would have been alight constantly, so any gentleman could light a cigar. There may have been a pair at each end of the bar. These were quite a common sight in the late Victorian / Edwardian period. In pubs of the time, they had more jokey subjects, such as Mr Punch, clowns or dogs etc and these were usually made of brass or cast iron, so this one has come from a very high class establishment.
After gas lighting when out of fashion and electricity came in, these things were taken out and very few exist today; this one has been converted into a lamp, probably in the 1930s. It comes with a 1930s silk lamp shade, which does not do it any justice, to be honest; this one would look fantastic with a coloured glass shade, if you still want to use it as a lamp. Also this must be rewired by a professional electrician, as it still has its old wire and fittings attached, which do not pass modern electrical standards.
This is a beautiful and very rare piece, I have never seen another apart from one on the antiques road show many years ago. As it is solid bronze and it stands on a black marble base it is quite heavy, so shipping will be 8.95 to the UK.
It measures; 12.5 inches long x 7.5 inches high.

Silver Roman Coin Gallienus, August 260 A.D.

A silver Roman coin of Gallienus, the obverse has the emperor bust and the reverse the emperor with standard. It is in nice clear condition and measures just under one inch in diameter.
Gallienus was co-emperor with his father Valerian from 253, then ruled alone after his father's capture by Parthia in 260. Ruling during the Crisis of the Third Century that nearly caused the collapse of the empire, he repelled wave after wave of barbarian invaders, but he was unable to prevent the secession of important provinces. Gallienus presided over a late flowering of Roman culture, patronizing poets, artists, and philosophers. He was assassinated by his own soldiers in 268 while besieging Milan.

Late 1940's to early 1950's Hornby tin plate O gauge railway engine, British Railways No3 engine 82011. This one has had the clockwork mechanism dismantled, probably for cleaning but never replaced. It, I am told is all there including the spring and key, all the relevant cogs are still attached inside the engine. The engine itself is in lovely condition and also comes with some track. A great simple little project for the railway buff.
