Rare Oil Lamp/Heater for Keeping the Ice Fishing tent warm and steamy with Water or Heating up Lunch. Possibly even a medicinal humidifier for a Sick Room.
Tin Oil Lamp Fount is integral with the whole metal Frame which holds Water or Soup overtop of the Lamp's Heat. Sometimes used as a medicinal humidifier for a sick room. Zero Size Burner holds a 2 inch round Cylindrical Chimney just fits beneath the Kettle Holder. Tinsmith made bottom Fount with soldered strap frame, with riveted construction in the upper pierced kettle half. Any metal kettle that's 4 1/8 inches in diameter or slightly less would fit.
Restoration : The Tin Fount has been chemically Sealed and is guaranteed not to leak. I also used safe water-based black acrylic paint.
Measures : Overall 16 inches High from base to top of wire bail handle, and frame alone is 12 inches High.
