Antique Pewter Fluid or Whale Oil Lamp Tulip Bulb-Shaped Reservoir Two Burners
Date: Unknown but we suspect mid-1800s.
Origin: Was purchased at an estate sale in Southeast Pennsylvania.
Size: The lamp measures ~5" in diameter at the base and is ~7 7/8" high to the top of the burner. The piece weighs about one pound and 9 ounces.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice classic antique worthy of a spot in your collection.
Condition: The piece is in very good condition with no breaks or repairs. It appears to be all original and has developed a nice warm gray age patina. The cover fits into the opening and screws in very well. It is relatively clean and appears not to have seen much use in the past judging by the coloration of the interior of the reservoir. The piece has scratches, some surface dings here and there and a few minor nicks as well as some minor pitting. The piece is solid and would display nicely in any collection or can be used as a decorative accent. Please see photos for additional condition information.
