Hanging Copper Kerosene Oil Lamp With ShadeHanging Copper Kerosene Oil Lamp With ShadeHanging Copper Kerosene Oil Lamp With ShadeHanging Copper Kerosene Oil Lamp With Shade

This rustic hanging copper kerosene lamp is well worn but still fully functional - it looks great in a Western themed or Early American style setting. The lamp font and frame have honest aged patina and present well, but the shade is quite dark, having lost the original shiny finish, and has spots of verdigris. Note the difference in coloring between the interior and exterior - the shade actually may not be original to the lamp. The style appears to be from the 1950s - early 1960s while the frame and font look considerably older.

The lamp has a fairly small profile. The frame is 14 inches high to the bottom finial. The arm width is 10-3/4 inches. The brass burner is marked Eagle. The cotton wick has not been burned. It's newer than the lamp and seems a little wide for the slot. There's no hanging ring or finial at the top, though the opening for one is present. The shade has clamps on the inside to connect to the frame arms. It measures 13 inches diameter by about 3-3/4" high. The lamp has never been converted to electric. If the first picture looks a little off at the bottom, it's because I balanced the lamp in a glass tumbler.
