Our 1959 Arthur Beale catalogue show these lamps as Tom Bowling Oil Lamps. Intrigued by the name I did some research. It transpires that this lamp was the first product made by the car parts giant Lucas! It was patented in 1875 by Joseph Lucas and was made in the Tom Bowling Lamp Works which was later renamed Joseph Lucas and Sons. The name Tom Bowling came from an old sea shanty written by Charles Dibdin in 1789. A lot of heritage for a lovely lamp.
