Gallery Of Glass For Sale - Outlander Vessels - Outlander Short Open Flame Lamp
Ordering, Postage, Payment, Import Duty & Safety Outlander Vessels By Season
This Short Open Flame Oil Lamp dates to the mid to later 18th century and has a biconical oil reservoir sitting directly on the stem and into which extends the wick.
The stem is formed from a solid gather of glass with a small tear shaped into a simple bobbin of two round knops over an inverted baluster with a round basal knop. The foot is folded and turned up at the rim. The handle has a thumb-piece and is shaped to fit the fingers.
Each lamp is supplied with a brass wick holder and a short length of flat 11mm wide wick. The wick holder is based directly on an original one. We fit a small, thin cork to the underside to hold it in place.
For other styles of short lamps that we have in stock, see this page.
We do not make Short Open Flame Oil Lamps to order - these are individual vessels that are in stock and can be purchased as seen.
The main work on these lamps is: Kelsall, K. (1995) 'Glass in 18th century England - The Open-Flame Lamp' Keith Kelsall: The Cromwell Press, Wiltshire (Chapter 7 deals with these lamps).
