The oil lamp has a cast iron base and a brass connector joining the ribbed clear glass font. The font consists of a row of ribs or flutes with a band separating them from a clear undecorated shoulder. I have not been able to identify the pattern (if anyone out there recognizes the pattern I would appreciate the information).
The original brass Atwood collar would date the lamp to the late 1800's. See Thuro's "Oil Lamps" page 40 for a detailed discussion of the collar style.
The cast iron base has lost most of its original gold finish.
The lamp is in excellent condition with NO breaks, cracks, chips, dings or repairs. There are some air bubbles in the glass font but none are through to the surface.
The brass collar takes a standard No. 1 burner. Please note that if you need a burner and wick I will include one for no additional charge if you tell me at the time of purchase – it will be a new solid brass burner.
The lamp stands 8 & ¾ inches tall and the cast iron base is 3 & ½ inches square. The packed shipping weight of the lamp is 2 lb 14 oz.
A handsome addition to any lamp or lighting collection.
