Here for sale is a fantastic rare antique pair of ships gimbals with lamp holders. The gimbals have stunning cast bronze dolphins. The lamp holders appear to be brass, but we have not cleaned. 

We believe these date from the 19th Century. Originally would have held an oil lamp, but could be used as fabulous candle holders. Stunning rare and decorative items. Perfect either side of a mirror as shown to add soul and personality to a modern interior.


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
