I offer a post Civil War dated zero size 1867 oil lamp burner with petite hand tooled pie crust chimney. The burner fits a standard 7/8 inch collar but the zero size is much smaller. The chimney, which is hand blown, and slightly out of round, measures 1 15/16" in diameter and is 6 1/2 inches tall. When you hold the chimney to the light, you can see the swirling of the glass with the spinning of the glass. The uncleaned burner is dated on the thumb wheel: "Pat. Dec. 10, 1867 Venus". The burner originally had the old wick in it but age had dried it out and the mechanism to raise and lower the wick no longer worked so I had to remove it and clean up remnants inside the wick tube and on the raiser wheel It now works well. If you want portions remaining of the old wick, let me know and I will enclose, I have not cleaned the burner. Both burner and chimney are in good shape. This size of burner and chimney looks especially good on one of you favorite petite no. 1 size finger lamp from the same period. Check my shop for other items of interest.
