Vintage Civil War Era~ Hinged Burner Antique Oil Lamp Taplin~ 1864:
Up for aution we have a GREAT find.
We found this VERY OLD oil lamp in a barn down in Southern Indiana, the woman told us that she remembers this lamp fromher childhood and she was 85 years old
The lamp burner is Patd 1864 so we are assumming that this lamp is from the Civil war period
The base is made out of glass, it looks to be 2 pieces brought together the oil base and the bottom base with handle
This is a simple lamp nothing fancy about it but what a AWESOME find
we bought a wick and thresed it through to test the wick does go up and down
This lamp does NOT have a chimney
This measures roughly 6" X 6"
Has original Patina(and dirt LOL) we did not attempt to clean this
DONT MISS THIS ONE!!
