ANTIQUE KEROSENE OIL LAMP – Marble base – Pattern Glass Font

Offered for bid is this nice old Kerosene Oil Lamp with originalMarble base. Although there is no maker’s name or date, lamps with marble bases usually were produced prior to 1865.

The glass font with a vertical ribbed pattern is clear and in fine condition. A brass stem joins the base and font. There is a very small break on the stem, probably caused by over-tightening at some time (see photos).

The lamp measures 7-7/8” high to top of brass collar, with the marble base being 3-1/2” square. The marble has some wear consistent with nearly 150 years of use!

A nice "Eagle" burner ( 2 5/8" across ) is included, and it is marked on the thumb screw “Risdon Mfg. Co. Danbury CT. Made in U.S.A. – P & A”. Also included is the vintage chimney which is 7-7/8” tall.

This is a great original kerosene oil lamp that would look great in most any décor!
