NICE OLD AMETHIST TINT KEROSENE OIL LAMP IN GOOD CONDITION, NO CRACKS JUST ONE PLACE ON THE BASE W A AIR BUBBLE HAS BURST. THIS GLASS IS THE KIND THAT TURNS PURPLE FROM THE SUN AND HAS A SLIGHT GREEN GLOW WHEN PLACED UNDER A BLACK LIGHT. IT HAS A LOT OF OLD AIR BUBBLES. THE LAMP HAS AN OLD EBLING TYPE COLLAR WHICH WAS MADE AROUND 1900, ABOUT THE SAME PERIOD THIS TYPE OF GLASS WAS USED. THE LAMP STANDS 10'' HIGH TO THE TOP OF THE COLLAR, 14 3/4'' TO THE TOP OF THE SHADE, 19 1/8'' TO THE TOP OF THE CHIMNEY. THE FOUNT IS 5 1/2'' WIDE, THE BASE IS 5 5/8'' WIDE.

THE SHADE HOLDER NOT VERY OLD EITHER. THE LAMP IS MADE OF VERY THICK GLASS AND WITH SHADE AND CHIMNEY THE TOTAL WEIGHT OF THE LAMP IS A LITTLE OVER 5 LBS. I WILL NOT COMBINE SHIPPING CHARGES WITH THIS ITEM, IT WILL TAKE A RATHER LARGE BOX FOR THIS COMPLETE LAMP AND THE SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE RATHER HIGH. THESE PIECES WILL BE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED IN BUBBLE WRAP AND PACKED WITH LOTS OF PEANUTS IN A STRONG BOX. THE INSURANCE AND CONFIRMATION # IS INCLUDED IN THE SHIPPING AND HANDLING CHARGES.
