Uranium Glass Finger Lamp
Product code - 0526LG
Sold on 23rd March 2014
The green tint in the glass used to make this kerosene finger lamp is not overly pronounced. It is only when it is exposed to ultra violet light that you can see the wonderful glowing colour for which uranium glass is known.
The font design has two faceted bands with a waisted panel below each band and an applied handle. It is also a generous size, so would not have required refilling as often as earlier lamps.
This uranium glass finger lamp dates to the depression era circa 1930. There is a chance that it was made in Australia but we believe it is more likely to have originated in England or perhaps the Continent.
The oil lamp has a brass collar and is fitted with a vintage burner, wick and chimney.
Overall, the lamp is in excellent condition with only a small amount of wear evident on the base. This is commensurate with its age and usage. Apart from that there are no chips, cracks or damage of any kind.
Height to the top of the burner – 14cm (5.5″)
Height to the top of the chimney – 30.5cm (12″)
Diameter of the font – 10cm (4″)
Width of the lamp (including handle) – 13.5cm (5.25″)
