Whale Oil Lamp

Nancy and Gene Pratt


Description: This form of lighting could be used as a whale oil lamp with a drop-in burner or as a “lacemaker’s lamp” when the font is filled with water as a means of creating a brighter light from a light source (candle or lamp) that is placed in close proximity to it. The entire lamp is hand blown with a polished pontil. Excellent condition and dates to the mid 19th century. Dimension: 8 3/4”H
