Remaining in especially nice condition save a small bend or ding at the rim of the base (see photo), this pewter lamp would have been used from about 1837 when camphene was first introduced as lighting fuel until the early 1860s when use of camphene fell away in favor of kerosene. Sporting the telltale elongated, tapered brass burner tubes especially designed to handle the volatile camphene fuel (made from distilled turpentine) this lamp stands approximately 3 3/8 inches from base to mouth, not counting the 1 1/4 inch burner tubes and is 4 5/16 inches in diameter at its base. With no dents or scars save the afore mentioned bend at the rim, this is a nice second quarter of the 19th century camphene lamp. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
