Gallery Of Glass For Sale - Outlander Vessels - Outlander Tall Open Flame Lamp
Ordering, Postage, Payment, Import Duty & Safety Outlander Vessels By Season
This Tall Open Flame Oil Lamp dates to the mid to later 18th century and has an oblate spheroid-shaped oil reservoir above a short cylindrical chamber for the wick immediately above a drip tray.
The stem is formed from a lengthened bubble of glass shaped into a biconical form between a blown collar and a flat merese above a small basal knop and a wide, domed foot. 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 tall lamps that we have in stock, see this page.
We do not make Tall 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).
