Antique Kerosene Parlour Lamp

Product code - 0603

This antique kerosene parlour lamp is beautifully decorated with stencil and hand painted dogwood flowers in  delicate pinks and lemon with brown toned leaves.

We believe this antique kerosene parlour lamp to be one of the earliest produced. By the mid 1890s virtually all parlour lamps were fitted with a removable brass centre draught slip font. This oil lamp however, has a permanently fixed brass font that will only accept a flat wick burner.

The glass of the shade is very fine and light which is another characteristic of early parlour lamps. It also rings beautifully when tapped. The shade has a fire polished bottom fitter rim and a smooth top rim. There are a couple of tiny air bubbles within the glass of the vase section and another blemish that looks like the glass has run slightly. All of these things are as the lamp was made.

The font is fitted with a gallery style “Eagle” burner made by Plume & Atwood. It is a multi purpose burner because it was made with two different thread sizes, one above the other, so that it could be fitted into either a #2 or #3 sized collar. A new chimney completes the antique kerosene parlour lamp.

For a lamp dating to the 1880s, this lamp is in exceptionally good condition. Other than the manufacturing marks already mentioned, there are no signs of chips, cracks, paint loss or damage of any kind.

This antique kerosene parlour lamp is sure to make a wonderful addition to your home or your collection.

Height to the top of the chimney – 48cm (17.75″)

Height to the top of the shade – 41cm (16″)

Diameter of the shade – 25cm (10″)
