American Antique Pewter Whale Oil Lamp~signed Capen & Molineux Ny~circa 1850~:
For yourconsiderationa really nice early pewter whale oil lamp. From the esteemed company Capen & Molineux of NY. It's has many ornate and interesting designs. Again this is from my brother's personal collection. While a glass collector, he found interest in all things fine and antique.
The lamp stands 8 and 3/4 inches to the top of the burners with the base measuring 5 inches wide. It is really great shape for it's age. There is one small dent to the side and the tops of the burners are little dented, other than that nothing but appropriate wear and aging. The bottom is stamped Capen & Molineux NY 20. It could use a good cleaning for sure!! I will leave that up to the new owner!!
Please note that the first 8 photos show the actual dark patina. The last 4 came out lighter than it actually is with the flash, but showed more detail.
