Not sure what else can be added; all the information about what they are and who made them and when and who designed them is included in the base.

I know they are numbered 78 & 86 but wondered how many was in the run or any other information really as i have been unable to find any other images or information on them on the internet.

I remember my nan having these on her shelf with various other Holkham pieces as my granddad used to work there. I used to help him put the lamp bases together when I stayed with them.

As you say the numbers refer to how many were made as part of a limited edition - maybe 100 or 200 of each, although since they haven't written it as 86/100 or 86/200 there may not have been a limit; they were only limited by the time it took to produce them before the Coronation. If they were the pattern number I'd expect them to be part of the ink stamp rather than handwritten.
