This classic Civil War vintage spun brass finger lamp retains a period sheet iron modification to cooker / warmer. Standing approximately 6 inches the little finger lamp burner sports a hand crafted sheet iron chimney which incorporates a natural mica (isinglass) window emitting light and aiding in adjusting the flame for heat level. An interesting example of ingenuity aimed toward the conversion of a period common finger lamp into a handy traveling burner for boiling coffee and heating food. Offered here in as found and in untouched condition this little cooker remains in pleasing condition yet with eye appealing evidence of age and originality. A neat little personal item that would have served well in winter camp. 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!
