Description

Hi, Offered here is a copper base to an oil lamp c 1890. There aren’t any holes in the metal in spite of the oxidation and some rust that you see. No leaks. The total height of this piece to the tip of the burner is just about 13 inches. This needs some copper polish a chimney, a shade, a wick and some TLC. Originally, this may have had a 9 – 10 inch diameter ball shade, or, half shade. Either one would look great set off by the copper base. The cap is included with this as can be seen in the photos. The copper content is worth quite a bit on its own merit!

 

It looks a bit crooked but only because of the way the stand is set that it sits on. The green is simple oxidation that happens with copper over time. The bottom is a metal that rusts. This can all be easily cleaned up. I don’t see any identifying manufacturer anywhere on the base or associated parts. Being sold “as is” and “as found”.
