Bournemouth Lamp

inscription:  Model of ancient Egyptian lamp circa B.C. 100 to A.D. 100 found at Southbourne, Bournemouth. Rd. No. 638371

length:  105mm

matching arms:  Bournemouth

notes:  Registered in 1914 and featured the same year as a new model in the 8th edition of The Goss Record, which also carried an illustration. Some people also accept the arms of Egypt or any other Egyptian arms as matching on the grounds that the inscription specifically states that the model originated in Egypt before somehow making its way to Southbourne.
