Remaining in especially nice condition with its deep natural age patina, this little tinned camphene lamp stands approximately 2 ¾ inches including its 1 1/8 inch brass camphene burner. The lamp measures about 2 11/16 across its PAT APPL’D FOR base. With its telltale elongated, brass burner tubes especially designed to handle the volatile camphene fuel (made from distilled turpentine) and early patent application marking this lamp would have been manufactured in or shortly after 1837 when camphene was first introduced as lighting fuel. The use of camphene fell away in favor of kerosene in the early 1860s. A nice little lighting device with use from the late 1830s through the Civil War era. 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!
