This old lamp base is generally considered a finger lamp because of the handle that is part of the base. The stem of the lamp is flared and paneled and the handle is angular. The glass has a lot of tiny bubbles in it and it has started to turn a very faint lavender. The brass burner is marked No.1 Queen Anne and in the back near the hinge is the number 22. The wick adjusting screw is marked Scoville Mfg. Co. U.S.A. The burner should unscrew for filling the lamp with kerosene but it seems to be seized onto the flange which was originally attached to the base with plaster of paris. This would have had a glass hurricane shade but this lamp doesn’t come with one.

It measures about 6 ½” tall without the shade holder and the bottom of the base measures about 4 5/8” in diameter. The shade holder will hold a hurricane shade having a base measuring about 2 ½” in diameter. It is in very nice condition with minimal wear. There are a few nicks on the bottom of the base but there are no cracks. As previously mentioned and as can be seen in the photos the flange of the burner/shade holder is not permanently attached to the lamp and this does not come with a shade.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
