mid-19th century tubular wick Oil Lamp

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Standing approximately 5 inches from base to burner top, this attractive little chimneyless oil lamp is an example of a transition from the similarly sized double wick camphene lamps of the 1850s . Despite wide continued use of the volatile camphene lamps through the mid-19th century, by the time of the Civil War the U.S. Patent Office had recorded nearly 250 different patents for all manner of lamps, wicks, burners, and fuels to meet consumer demand for less volatile, clean illumination. The tube wick lamp offered a departure from the dangerous mixture of turpentine, alcohol, and camphor oil (camphene) lamp.
