SPECIAL NOTE: Marked " PATN APP 318 1375" " Mch (March) 21, 1878"

Fantastic patina on the brass burners and the wicks look "never used".

This is one of the more difficult to find whale oil lamps. It was hand blown into a mold and the handle was applied. It still has the original wick caps and original chains that held onto the wick caps. Whale oil lamps did not have chimneys because the oil burned so cleanly. The wicks were adjusted using a needle or some other long pointed object. The brass cap is marked with the patent number and date.
