This is a circa 1865, kerosene oil finger lamp that is pictured in Thuro's Oil Lamps Book 1, page 102, and identified as "Diamond Band & Shield" pattern. The lamp is 3 1/4" to the top of the collar; it has an applied handle, an old Crescent "O" size glass chimney, and an old Eagle "O" burner. The lamp stands 11 3/4" to the top of the glass chimney. The lamp, burner, and chimney are all in very good condition. There is some age wear on the bottom of the lamp.
