Brass Lamps

Nigel has produced a pair of exquisite brass and copper lamps that each weigh in at 8kg ! They more than prove his skills in brass work. Each contains over 800 brass rivets.

These exquisite brass and copper lamps were built over a period of a couple of years. Each one weighs 8kg and takes some cleaning ! © Nigel A. H. Day

Nigel's lamps make occasional appearance on locomotives.
