This beautiful lamp has been carefully hand made by converting an old Eversure Fillacan Petrol can from the 1950’s. The can has been cleaned and waxed to preserve it’s character and charm and has been mounted on a chunky piece of solid slate that has been salvaged from an old snooker table bed. There are a few of these lamps about but the solid slate base and careful conversion help this one to stand out from the crowd.
The hinged pouring spout has been fixed in place to make a stand for the flame style bulb and the weathered blue paint and raised lettering (on both sides) just oozes character. The embossed lettering on each side reads “Petroleum Spirit – Highly Flammable – Eversure – Fillacan – Made in England”
The lamp is fitted with an E14 SES (small edison screw) bulb holder and comes complete with an flame style filament bulb for that retro look.
The grey mottled fabric covered twisted cable has a matching retro style on off switch mid way for convenient control of the lamp.
An really decorative feature which would look equally well on a table or shelf in the home or office and would be a real talking point for bars, restaurants or cafes. A perfect gift idea for petrol heads and motor enthusiasts of all ages

This is what gives these items their charm and warmth and makes each one truly unique, it is not a fault, it is an enhancement and is what has lead to the creation of the finished item.
The electrical conversion has been carried out by a qualified electrical engineer and this lamp comes complete with a current portable appliance test (PAT) certificate for your safety and peace of mind.
