Up for your consideration is a 14" tall vintage Risdon all glass
lamp/lantern for oil and/or kerosene .
Made in Danbury, CT by the Risdon Mfg. Co.
Also on the wick knob is "P&A". (?)
(How does one know if it's for oil or kerosene? I'd appreciate it if you emailed to let me know!)
Condition : Fairly good vintage condition. No chips or cracks in the glass.
The wick knob was a little stiff but some oil has helped it now & maybe
a little more would still benefit it. Base is darkened by former use; I'll leave it
to the winning bidder to decide if they want the golden amber patina or not.
Dimensions : 14" x 6" at widest
This was acquired from a property that had been abandoned since the 70s
and I know someone who just purchased this property and the contents
of the residence were also included. T were a variety of items that are
nowadays collectible, so watch my current & upcoming auctions for
"new" collectible goodies..... you never know what you may find!
If t's anything I may have overlooked mentioning,
please email me and clearly describe what you need to know
and I'll try to answer your questions as best I can.
