Triple Rare "Diamond Band & Fine Rib" Fount Pattern Oil Lamp with a Rare Square White Glass Base & Fluted Glass top Zero Chimney !!!
Early Diamond Band Pattern Lamps are Ca. 1860 to 1870. The White Milk Glass Square Base is another rarity in itself. It has No Chips with an honest wear pattern and a normal straw mark underneath which is not a crack ! The original sheet brass Stem Bell does have a nasty wrinkle in it, but could be easily replaced with a better example anytime.
Rare Zero Size Blown Glass Chimney has a Fluted & Fine Bead Pie Crust Top.
The early High Dome Burner is marked : "Pat'd Feb.11,73 * Jan.16,83"
