This plain oil lamp dates from 1920 and is mold blown. Both the top oil font and the lower base and stem where blown by hand into a mold then joined with a molten wafer of glass. This robust size lamp is often called a "sewing lamp" because it was placed in the center of the kitchen/dining room table and women gathered to do their sewing, knitting, darning, etc. by its light. It is in very good condition and includes a solid brass #2 antique Queen Ann burner made by Plume & Atwood. The "Big Bulge" chimney and the wick are new replacements. The original solid brass collar is well cemented to the neck, but does have a couple of stress cracks. A complete working no-nonsense 95-year-old lamp for a good price!
A similar partially frosted version can be seen in Catherine Thuro's Vol I on page 241, and an Indiana Glass Co. 6-panel on p. 276. Value $100-$150.
Price = $80.00 + the actual shipping cost to your location. I do not charge for handling or packing materials.
