Double Arch Antique Stand Lamp

Product code - 0495D
Sold Nov 2021

The pattern of this antique stand lamp is called “Double Arch” and it has been attributed to both the King Glass Company and to the O’Hara Glass Company. These companies were part of the merger of 18 glass companies in 1891 that formed the United States Glass Company so it is not surprising that it was shown in the United States Glass Company catalogue circa 1893.

The Double Arch oil lamp is also shown on page 316 fig. (b) of Catherine Thuro’s first book “Oil Lamps – The Kerosene Era in North America”.

The design and quality of the glass used for this lamp give it the look of the earlier antique stand lamps of the 1860s. There are only two tiny air bubbles and one manufacturing straw mark on the entire lamp.


The lamp is in excellent condition, only showing minor signs of wear on the underside of the base. The amount of wear is commensurate with its age and usage.

Finally, the vintage burner is in good working order and a new wick and chimney are included.

This Double Arch antique kerosene lamp is sure to be an interesting and attractive addition to your home. It will look lovely on a mantlepiece, sideboard or even in the bedroom.


Height to the top of the burner – 25.5cm (10″)

Height to the top of the chimney – 40.58cm (16″)

Diameter of the font – 13cm (5″)
