Description

KEROSENE POTTERY LAMP - Early to Mid 1900's - BRASS COLLAR, EAGLE BURNER with P & A Mfg. Co, Made in U.S.A. Thomaston, Conn.

I wish I could have posted more pictures of this beautiful and unusual Kerosene Lamp. It has no name…no embossing on the pottery with the exception of the beautiful scroll type design near the base. The Eagle burner seems original and the information included in the title about the manufacturing Co. is on the burner's turn knob. I believe that this is where the burner was made, not the lamp. The brass collar that the burner screws into is definitely original. The lovely light green chimney is not hand blown so I doubt if it is original. Also, the ends are smooth, not "cracked off" like old chimneys are.

The high gloss finish made it hard to photograph this lamp. It is a beautiful black. Without the burner the lamp is 8 1/2 inches tall. With the chimney in place, the total height is 17 1/2 inches. The base diameter is 4 1/2 inches. The weight is slightly more than 4 1/2 lbs...it is heavy!

Careful examination reveals that the piece was made in two halves. You can see and feel the horizontal line where the pieces were joined before the glazing. There are no cracks and no chips but there are a few blemishes on the shiny finish…a scratch, a scuff mark (picture 4) and a narrow line by the place where the halves were joined that didn't accept the glazing perfectly (picture 5). None of these "flaws" are evident unless you really study the piece. (I didn't see any of them until I was measuring the lamp.)

The lamp's "font" for the oil is the upper half of the lamp. When you look inside the base hole you can see that the upper half of the lamp has a "false" bottom which forms the base of the holder for the oil (the font). I want to note that this is NOT a lamp made from an old piece of pottery. This old stoneware was made to be a lamp!

PRICE FOR THIS UNUSUAL KEROSENE LAMP IS $ 40.00.

Shipping: This item requires a very large box and shipping across the country will be more than shipping to a Western State. So, for such large items as this, I have used Etsy to calculate your shipping fee. Your charge will be based on your zip code. If you want to combine this item with others, please email me and I will help you to save on shipping. Your purchases will be mailed within 3 working days.
