The lamp stands approximately 7 3/4 tall from the base to the top of the metal collar and it has a concave base. The lamp includes its original burner with wick and it rests inside the top opening where oil can pool just slightly above the wick.
The overall condition of the lamp is excellent. It is extremely clean and it has standard roughness to the bottom rim with one 3/4 sliver chip on the bottom of the foot. The font has no oil residue inside and the clarity of the glass is excellent with no cloudiness. The bottom has light rubbing from where it was slid around and air bubbles can be seen in the glass. The brass collar is original and it is solid with no cracks.
This is a very desirable form in whale oil lamps! Please be sure to check out my other auctions for more great items!
