For your consideration, I offer a quite early flat finger oil lamp in the pattern known as 1868 Filley. This lamp was made by Atterbury and is illustrated in the first Catherine Thuro oil lamp boo, page 128b. The patent dates is embossed on the bottom of the lamp and it is near the outer edge, rather difficult to take a photo of. It reads: "Pat. June 30, 1868". This patent was for the unique handle that some Atterbury lamps used. The handle was molded separately and pressed into the body of the lamp while the glass was still hot. The center of the body of the lamp has a molded vertical band all around. The mold marks to make the lamp are also visible. The brass early collar is also original. This is a small lamp and has a small zero size burner and pearl top chimney to compliment the size of the lamp.The chimney has a 2 inch fitter and is 6 1/2 inches tall. I could find no embossing on the wick wheel of the burner. If there was one, it was very faint. The top of the gallery flips open to trim the wick (no wick in the lamp). The burner and collar are dirty. I did not clean them. I noted good clarity to the glass of the lamp. I felt a rough spot on the outside of one side of the rim. I believe this was a manufacturing tooling mark when the handle was attached to the lamp. There are no chips or cracks, only the usual manufacturing imperfections in this era of glass making. I will double box the lamp for secure transit. Choose among the two methods I offer and check my shop for other items of interest
