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.

Wick Holders Wick in position

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.
