This Perfection oil lamp is a beauty. The burner has "Mar. 1905"....."Feb. 28. 05"....."Pat'D Nov. 20. 94" marked on it. (See pic). It has the filler cap on the side which is marked "Perfection". The wick turns freely. The shade bracket is in great condition as well as the shade. The colors look good and the shade has no damage. The lantern base has a small dent which actually adds a little character and charm. I don't know what material this lamp is made of. T is a little spotting on the finish, I don't know if it can be polished out or not. I don't want to use the wrong cleaning products and risk damaging the finish. I will let the next owner clean and polish. More pictures can be provided. Just give me your email address so that I may send them to you.I accept paypal and moneyorders.
