This is an excellent example of the oil wick lamps used by miners as replacement for candles. The lamp provided a brighter light than the candles previously used. They also produce more smoke, adding to the hazards the miners faced on a daily basis including explosions (open flame), and an already poor atmosphere for breathing up to 16 hours per day.
The Husson Miners Lamp was sold in bulk at a price of about $5.00 each when purchased in lots of 12 or more, in 1905...
Patented 11.17.03, the lamp has clean solder joints, and shows only minor rust on the base of the interior. This lamp was not used based on condition, and includes the original wick cleaning rod.
This is a must for any mine safety and collectable mine devises rarely seen on the open market.
