For your consideration, I offer this little milk glass miniature oil lamp base which came with burner, wick, and shade ring. This is an early 20th century lamp that has a screw on collar. The pattern is known by two different names: Block and Dot and also Mission Octagon. The pattern was shown in catalog ads circa 1912 and came with a few different types of shades. Please reference Frank & Ruth Smith's firs book on mini lamps: Miniature Oil Lamps, Figure 190. I believe that this base once had an octagon shape ball type shade as I know the burner and ring were original. The burner and ring were quite dirty when I purchased this lamp base and I cleaned them up somewhat. The lamp is approximately 4 3/4 inches tall to the top of the burner. The round foot is 2 3/4 inches in diameter. The little Acorn type old burner is unmarked. with the naked eye but with a strong magnifying glass there is faint evidence of a name or date on the wick wheel rim. There are no chips or cracks. Check my shop for other items of interest and send an email if you have any questions.
