Hi Ruth and Alan

Thanks so much. The parcel arrived two days ago but I’ve only just got my internet back on. We’ll keep your wonderful instructions on hand.
Thanks again for your help. I’m sure we’ll get a lot of joy out of it. I’ll send a picture when it’s hung

Kind regards

Hi Ruth and Alan,

Thank you so much for the information.
It didn’t matter to me what the value of the lamps was, I would never part with them, I love them way too much.
It’s great to finally have some information on them.
I’m so appreciative that you took the time in your busy schedule to send me the information.
Have a wonderful day,

Dear Ruth and Alan

Everything went quite okay thank you. It fitted quite well and Linda was very pleased with the results. It has been operating since. Thank you for all your efforts made on our behalf. Without your interest there is no doubt that there would not have been a successful conclusion to our search.

Thank you again,


Greg and Linda, May 15, 2014, Townsville, QLD, Australia

I’ll be back!

Ade, February 13, 2014, Geelong, VIC, Australia

Hi Ruth and Alan

The lamp arrived just fine well done on the packing of such a delicate object. I will periodically check on your website to see what other Vaseline glass items you have and will be a nice addition to my collection of antiques.
Thanks again,

David A, February 13, 2014, Brisbane, QLD, Australia

Hello Ruth and Alan

Thankyou, we received the chimneys, all intact and not one broken, you did a lovely job in packing.
So thankyou,

Sharon, February 12, 2014, Geraldton, WA, Australia

Hi Ruth and Alan,

The shade and chimney arrived all in one piece thank you.

Lindy’s Mum and I are going to surprise her this weekend and I know she will be over the moon about the lamp again being complete.

Thank you so much for your help and advice.

Kind regards

Alan and Ruth,

Thank you so very much for your help! I did not have the history of the lamps; I’m so grateful for the information. I live in a home that was built in 1910 and is registered on the National Historic Register here in the US. These lamps fit perfectly in the era of my home.
Thank you again for the information; If you are ever come to Little Rock, Arkansas neighbourhood, let me know. I would be happy to show you the town!

MichelleJuly 10, 2013, Little Rock, AR, USA

Hi Ruth & Alan,

The lamp arrived safe and sound and looks fantastic. All we need now is for our new dining table to arrive, then we can send you pictures of how great a centre piece it will really look.
Thanks again so much for all your trouble in getting it to us. We will certainly be coming back to you soon for another look around for some fantastic “show pieces”
Take care,

PS. For your information, your packaging of lamps is sensational, couldn’t possibly have any mishaps in transport with the care you put in…..Wonderful 🙂

Trev & Sal, July 6, 2013, Brisbane QLD, Australia

Hi Ruth and Alan,

Just to inform you the lamp arrived safely today. Thank you for your attention to detail with regard to packing the lamp.
All pieces were in good order and I have assembled the lamp successfully.
A test run will follow shortly.
Thank you again for efforts.
Kind Regards

Dear Ruth and Alan,

This is just a quick note to let you know the globe and funnel arrived safely yesterday which was a pleasant surprise for us. We are very pleased with both items which fit the lamp very well. It is just great to have it “all in one piece” again after over two years of unsuccessful attempts to find a replacement globe.
Many thanks for your efforts and input which we did appreciate, – it has been very pleasant doing business with you.
With kind regards

Elizabeth and AlastairMay 16, 2013, New Zealand

Ruth & Alan,

The globe (shade) arrived and it is beautiful. It is a perfect fit on our lamp. Thank you again.

Ruth and Alan,

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply in such a very helpful way. I really appreciate you doing this for me.
Many thanks.

MaxineMarch 15, 2013, Australia

As a first time purchaser of an oil lamp, I was very apprehensive about purchasing one online. However, after the wonderful experience I had with Oil Lamp Antiques I would do it again. Ruth and Alan were very helpful and my lamp arrived safely via very secure packaging and as good as the description on their web site. I am very pleased and highly recommend them to you.

Hi Ruth and Alan,

Just a short note to let you know the (hanging) oil lamp Trevor bought from you at Ballarat Fair is up and looks fabulous. Both Trevor and Doris are very happy with it.
Many thanks
