I was told this old oil or Kero based lamp came from a PENNY FARTHING Bicycle. The top is a storage container for the oil and inside under this is a wick and dial for controlling the wick length. The lamp is 5" in height and has one small dent on the top container part....needs cleaning also....but otherwise is in excellent all-round condition. The lamp is stamped Made in England and also has a Makers Roundel to the base which also has Made in England and the letters H.H.which is obviously the Makers Trade Mark.
