This is a very early pewter fat lamp. As you can see it has to reservoirs and the handle. It has been used as is evidenced by the wear on the pewter and several small dents, especially at the base. Lamps such as this were used to burn fats or whale oil prior to the use of kerosene. The lamp is 91/2 inches tall and 41/2 inches wide at the base. It weighs 1 pound and 5 ounces.
