Lot 294: A circa 1891 John P. Lovell Arms Co., 'Diamond' oil-powered Safety Bicycle lamp, of American design, this lamp featured a clear front glass and side glasses cut like diamonds, a trend of several makers at this time, the lamp was retailed with a UK design registration number of 25602 stamped on the base, the rear mounting bracket is correct, there is a hair-line crack in the front glass, a small chip in a side glass and the reservoir is a well-conceived replacement. A fine lamp. (1)
