I posted this three days ago prior to removing the paint. There are no manufacturer markings that I can find. There are threads on the top for possibly a globe. The base is made of porceline with the main lamp being copper. I think this is to elaborate to be a smudge pot plus most smudge pots I've seen don't have an adjustment for the wick. If anything, I'll put this on my patio table for decoration. Not bad for a $1 at the yard sale.

    Looks like an oil lamp. It's missing the glass flame protector, or hurricane lamp

    It is an alcohol lamp used in early scientific labs as a source of heat for heating beakers, test tubes, glassware, or a blowpipe to produce a torch like hot flame that produced no soot, before the advent of the Bunsen burner . Probably dates back to 1800's
