Offering nother nice very rare antique miniature lamp from my personal collection. Listing the miniature lamps I have managed to collect more than one of over the years.
Check in and often to see any new listings for miniature and a few larger oil lamps. Please see and enlarge all of the pictures for more information as they are a large part of the description. Their are no chips cracks or repairs. This is a nice example of a very very rare Victorian miniature oil or Kerosene lamp. The glass is milk glass with enamel fired on paint.Smith book page 142 figure 309. They came in blue pink and green. The writing is usually worn off but this one is still mostly all there and easy to read. The metal parts are all solid brass and have a desirable aged patina. The burner is made by the Edward Miller Co. And dates to the later 1800's. The shade holder and collar match and are period and in good condition.
The shade holder fits snugly on the burner and holds the shade without wabbling. The wick is probably original but still in good condition. Edward Miller burners were more of a high end victorian miniature lamp burner with fancy decoratios, different hole patterns and 2 internal wheels for raising the wick easier and more evenly. The lamp assembled is 8 1/2 tall to the top of the shade.The shade is 3 1/2" wide and 3 5/8" high. The fitter is 2 wide. The base font is approximately 4 1/4" to the top of the collar, approximately 3 1/2" wide at the bulge and 2 1/2 across the base foot. The Chimney is 4 3/8" tall with a 1 1/8" fitter. The wick is old but in good usable condition. I do accept offers in anything listed even if that option is not showing. If we agree on a price I will send an offer for that amount.
