Popularly used into the early post-Civil War years, primarily due to inexpensive and readily available fuel in the form of animal fat, lard and even strained cooking grease, the Ufford GREASE lamp clearly saw considerable use in many a country farmhouse and undoubtably offered up lighting on more than a single Civil War winter camp table. It would be there that the obtainable fuel would be especially appreciated. Fashioned from tinned sheet iron with a 6 3/4 inch diameter base the lamp stands approximately 7 inches with an applied brass label; S. N. & H. C. UFFORD. / 113 COURT ST. / BOSTON / KINNEARS PATENT / FEB. 4. 1851 this example offers good evidence of age with plenty of period use yet remains solid and in pleasing condition. As is our usual practice we have left this neat old lamp as found, leaving the decision to carefully clean it up to the new owner. (We’d leave it pure, just as put away.) . As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
