Zipper Loop Footed Finger Lamp

Product code - 0623Z

Zipper Loop oil lamps were made by Imperial Glass Co. in the early 20th century. The entire range of Zipper Loop lamps were mould blown rather than machine made. They are shown in the company’s 1909 catalogue in seven different sizes of stand lamp and three sizes of finger lamps. This example is the middle sized finger lamp in clear glass. These lamps were also made in Carnival glass in marigold and smoke.

Finger lamps like these were commonly used as bedtime lamps. The finger handle made them easy to carry and being smaller than stand lamps they were also more convenient to use.


This lovely little Zipper Loop footed finger lamp is in excellent condition. As expected, it has some tiny air bubbles within the glass and wear on the base due to regular use. Despite this regular use, there are no chips, cracks, repairs or damage of any kind to the glass or the collar.

Finally, a vintage burner and chimney complete the set up of the lamp.

This cute antique oil lamp is sure to be a welcome addition to your home or your collection.


Height to the top of the burner – 17cm (6.75″)

Height to the top of the chimney – 31cm (12″)

Diameter of the font – 11cm (4.25″)

Width of the lamp including the handle – 12.5cm (5″)
