This is an antique hand-held kerosene lamp that says ... Boat Signal Lantern .. just above the door. The back is signed .. Keystone Ware. The lamp stands just under 9" tall and is about 6" deep measuring to the back of the pcs. that you put your hand through. When you open the front section to get to the lamp, t's a spring-action knob at the base that you pull to get to the lamp. The inside looks nice and clean and the wick is still in the little lamp. I'm selling the lamp as is. It seems to be all t and in great shape but as you can see from the pictures, it shows rust on the back and handles and some oxidation. It's going to need to be cleaned. The glass in the front is also in nice shape. Great old lamp....I'm not sure what the metal is but a magnet does stick to it. The lamp has flat black paint on it which I think is original but not positive. Please email with any and all questions before bidding.
