Antique Ever Ready UK Bullseye Bulb Torch / Hand Lamp In A Wood Case

This Antique Ever Ready UK Bullseye Bulb Torch / Hand Lamp In A Wood Case is very unusual. We believe the torch /flashlight is one of the earliest to be manufactured by British Ever Ready Specialities (Ever Ready UK), and dates to the early 1900s.

These 'Ever Ready Bullsi Electric Hand Lamps, were used extensively as bicycle lamps and police lanterns, and in the WW1 trenches as officers lamps. 

Ever Ready Advert 1913

The bullseye bulb, approximately 6cm in diameter, has a nickel brass lamp holder. The rectangular wood surround is made from mahogany, with a nickel brass handle and decorative switch.

It measures approximately 12 cm x 9.7cm x 11.5 cm including the bulb.

The wood door slides off at the rear to reveal the battery compartment. As there is no 'D' cell battery present, to act as a counterweight to the bullseye lens, the torch doesn't stand upright!

In pretty good cosmetic condition, the torch does have scuffs, scratches, and surface cracks in the wood commensurate with age and use.

It is not in working condition, as there appears to be a few internal components missing, hence we are selling it as a historic decorative display piece only. It could easily be renovated to working condition by someone with a little knowhow.

A nice little item for those of us whom love bullseye bulb torches!
