STOLEN : LATE VICTORIAN LAMPS
Stolen from Colinton Edinburgh, Scotland on 15 Jan 2010
Item : The thefts occurred overnight on 15/16 January 2010.
Both lamps are late Victorian and were designed by Robert Rowand Anderson, the well known Scottish architect. Both lamps are of cast metal construction and were originally gas lit, so the internal fittings will indicate this.
The wall lamp (which was recently restored), is about 600mm high, with two wrought metal scroll bracket supports, and it has the three words, "Saint Cuthberts Colinton" cast as perforations on three sides above the glazing of the lantern (one of these words can be seen in the photo). This lamp is painted black.
The street lamp lantern is about 450mm high, slightly "gazebo" style; it may be damaged as a result of force used in wrenching it from the column. Note that only the lantern of the free standing "street lamp" was stolen, but not the supporting column. This lamp is painted red.
