This is a beautiful Adlake switch lamp. It has red and blue "bulls-eye" corning glass lenses, which catch light and "glow" even though there is no internal light. It dates it around 1933-36. The Kerosene burner is in tact with the original wick, however, the pyrex chimney is missing.

This was tucked away inside an antiques shop surrounded by scented candles and stained glass. It was the only rustic thing in there, so I'm happy to have rescued it at a bargain price.

It had already been lighty restored by the previous owner. I plan on cleaning, doing minor repairs, repainting and displaying it in my home.

    I have one of these lamps, it has 1264 stamped on the base . What does this mean?

    If you tell people that is the year it was made the value goes waaayyyy up!
    The model number for mine lamp is 1112, according to Lamps that Lit Our World (Hobson).

    The 1284 indicates the model number of the post mount.
