I AM UNCERTAIN AS TO THE AGE OF THIS OLD LAMP BUT IT IS VINTAGE AT THE VERY LEAST. IT IS AN OIL/KEROSENE LAMP WITH A METAL REFLECTOR THAT NOT ONLY HOLDS THE LAMP BUT ALSO MAKE YOU ABLE TO HANG THE LAMP. THE GLASS ON THE OIL BOTTLE IS PRESSED GLASS THAT HAS A FEW AIR BUBBLES IN IT. T IS A PATTERN THAT RUNS ALONG THE TOP EDGE THAT LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE CUBES. THE BURNER IS MARKED EAGLE AND THE CONTROL KNOB FOR THE WICK READS P. & A. RISDON MFG. CO. DANBURY, CT./MADE IN U.S.A. I AM NOT SURE IF IT IS NORMAL BUT THE P. & A. IS BACKWARDS FROM ALL OF THE OTHER WRITING. THE KNOB MOVES THE WICK AS IT SHOULD. THE WICK HAS BEEN BURNED ON THE TOP BUT DOES NOT APPEAR TO HAVE EVER BEEN OIL SOAKED AS IT IS CLEAN INSIDE THE CANISTER. THE REFLECTOR IS MADE OF METAL AND PAINTED BLACK. T IS A SLOT TO REMOVE THE REFLECTOR FOR CLEANING. I DON'T SEE ANY MARKINGS ON THE REFLECTOR AT ALL. T ARE A COUPLE OF MINOR SCRATCHES ON THE BACK OF THE REFLECTOR W SILVER METAL SHOWS THROUGH. T IS NOT A GLOBE WITH THIS LAMP. REPLACEMENTS ARE READILY AVAILABLE RIGHT ON EBAY!THE HOLDER AND REFLECTOR MEASURE ABOUT 8 INCHES TALL. THE BASE OF THE LAMP IS 4 1/8 INCHES ACROSS AND IT MEASURES FIVE INCHES TALL TO THE TIP OF THE TINES THAT HOLD THE GLOBE. A NICE OLD LAMP FOR THE COLLECTORS AND A GREAT PIECE FOR THE CABIN OR RUSTIC DECOR!
