Antique Hand Painted Porcelain Table Lamp by Hinks & Sons



Antique 19th Century Hand Painted Porcelain Table Lamp by A J Hinks and Sons Birmingham.

This exquisite table lamp features a stunning black lacquer design adorned with a hand-painted lady on one side and delicate flowers on the other.

The lamp is further enhanced with a Greek border at the top and bottom, adding an elegant touch to its overall appearance.

The base is crafted from solid black slate, providing stability and durability.

Each side of the lamp showcases a Greek goddess handle, adding a touch of timeless beauty.

A truly remarkable piece that exemplifies the artistry and craftsmanship of Hinks and Sons.

Hinks and Sons company was first incorporated in 1873 (and re-incorporated in 1896). Newspaper reports suggest that James retired as Managing Director and became Chairman in about 1897–98, when Joseph took over. The firm had bases in London and Birmingham. Important customers included railway companies, which used oil lamps to light stations, trains and signals.

With an eye to the domestic market, Hinks’ lamps were also decorative and borrowing from the designs of beautiful European china and porcelain table decorations their lamps were also a byword for domestic beauty, so much so that there is still a flourishing market for antique Hinks’ lamps. They also developed specialist lamps and hurricane lanterns for India which was one of their most lucrative markets.

Hinks’ lamps were state-of-the-art until the early 20th century when electric lighting became the norm.


Stunning lamp that is not only in excellent working condition but has also been meticulously cleaned and rewired to ensure optimal performance. Fully rewired, which includes 3 core braided fabric cable, lamp holders, and a UK 3 pin plug. Additionally, the lamp has undergone a PAT inspection to guarantee its safety and compliance with electrical standards.
