Unable to find other references other than footnote by Austin Dobson:

“The description of the Briloft is thus given in the earlier editions : “ There was a lamp of brasse, with eight socketts from the middle stem, like those we use in churches, having counter-feit tapers in them, streams of water issuing as out of their wickes, the whole branch hanging loose upon a tach [“catch” or “ fastening ”] in the middst of a beame, and without any other perceptible com’erce with any pipe, so that, unless it were by compression of the ayre with a syringe, I could not comprehend how it should be don. There was a chime of purselan dishes, which fitted to clock-worke and rung many changes and tunes ” (Diary, 1827, i. 30).”
