I will describe it to the best of my ability , but nearly every item i sell is from 50 to 100 years old and will show some sign of wear. A whale oil lamp from between 1850 and 1870........ But alas , they were both perfect and this one is not. I honestly think the damage is from a bad mold pull....... But i could be wrong....... There are 2 bruises on this lamp and they are opposite sides of the blue font....... Near the bottom of the font , they both are in the same places...... From the second "rim" and up........ One side can be seen but not felt...... The other side has a but of the "rim" missing glass......... It sounds bad , but the font will still hold oil and display OK......

This is often called the "tulip" pattern...... The blue is strong and the base is a clamsbroth color...... There is a brass fixture that holds the 2 colors together and it is nice........

I have no burner for this whale oil lamp..... But the top fixture measures...... 1 inch across the opening........ Overall the lamp is about....... But it would be a nice addition to your collection and should be seen as a real bargain for what they usually cost.

The 2 pictures near the bottom will show the lamp with a light bulb on the top and shining down into the glass.
