Famously associated with Benjamin Franklin who’s patent on the two tube lamp burner declared that two closely adjacent flames produced more than twice light of a single tube, the two tube whale oil burner was popularly used through the Civil War era. Per Hayward’s Colonial & Early American Lighting on page 47, a tinned whale oil lamp of the style offered here is known to have been shown in the 1866 New York exhibition of the Lincoln log cabin. That lamp had history of ownership and use by Lincoln in his early Illinois law office. Offered here as found, untouched and seemingly un-used, this tinned lamp will best be described by our illustrations except to advise that it stands approximately 6 3/4 inches with a 5 1/4 inch diameter base. A nice original example, this attractive old whale oil lamp will go well in any period setting. (see: Civil War vintage Missouri River Steamboat Bertrand cargo excavation collection.)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!
