I hope someone can help identify the type and manufacturer, and age, of this old lamp that appears to be a fuel lamp that hangs on a wall or porch and has a tank with a 1/4" pipe coming down into a bend that feeds into the burner. It has no markings as to the make, but does have stenciled on it "Richards & Conover Hardware" & "Kansas City, Missouri" on it. I am sure that Richards and Conover is not the manufacturer of it as they were a hardware store in Leavenworth, Ks. and Kansas City, Missouri in the late 1800's. The 1/4" pipe actually extends through the tank, being soldered on the bottom of the tank, and extending through the top where the hanging eye is attched to it. It still has the fill cap on it.
Anyone have any idea or know who I may contact for info on this old lamp?
