Swirled Rosettes by Riverside

Product code - 0523
Sold Nov 2021

This Swirled Rosettes pattern oil lamp was made by Riverside Glass Co. around 1884 to 1900.

Thanks to the distinctive flared clinch collar, it is easy to identify the maker.

Both the collar and the font have a small notch in them which is supposed to ensure they line up correctly before the brass sleeve is crimped inside the collar. As is the case with this oil lamp, it didn’t always work out that way and they were often misaligned.

The Swirled Rosettes glass pattern is identified on page 296 fig. (e) of Catherine Thuro’s first book “Oil Lamps – The Kerosene Era in North America”.


Overall, this Swirled Rosettes kerosene lamp is in very good to excellent condition without any chips, cracks or damage.

Finally, the oil lamp is fitted with a vintage burner and a vintage chimney and a new wick will be included.

It displays very well and will make a wonderful addition to your home or your collection.


Height to the top of the burner – 26.5cm (10.5″)

Height to the top of the chimney – 44cm (17.25″)

Diameter of the font – 14cm (5.5″)

Diameter of the base – 15cm (6″)
