Offered for sale today is a very lovely ABP cut glass kerosene type of lamp, most likely by Dorflinger, and commonly called a "Princess" lamp. The pattern is Strawberry Diamond and Fan. A lovely photo of this style of lamp is shown in the booklet "Slivers of Light: Rich Cut Oil Lamps" available at the Museum of American Glass at Wheaton Village, Millville, NJ on page 9. This particular model has the round globe instead of the acorn shaped globe. This lamp stands 17 1/2" tall inclusive of the chimney. The lamp itself has 5 glass parts consisting of the base, a small glass ring to hide the metal connections to the font and base, a globe and a chimney. The burner is a Plume and Atwood Acorn type of burner. All of the parts of the burner work well. As stated, the pattern is Strawberry Diamond and Fan. The base also has a St. Louis Diamond cutting on the "hand holder" portion.
All of the pieces are in excellent overall condition. The base, font, and globe fluoresce a yellowish green color under the black light. The chimney does not so I assume it is a replacement, which is not uncommon. Some parts of the burner appear to have been silver plated, namely the shade ring and collar ring on the font. There is also a slight "waviness" on the very top edge of the globe. What that means I do not know.
All in all, this is a rare item in American cut glass and would look great in any collection.
