Hi, I wanted to post the whale oil lamp that I found on craigslist recently. I got a great deal on it; I only paid $150.00. It has never been drilled or electrified. It is a cut-to-clear double-overlay Moorish Windows. I think it was made around 1855. Go to to see one just like it that sold for $950.00.

    Thank you DeeLores, neat.old.stuff and Hedgewalker. I really can't believe great stuff like this is still out there in peoples homes. It's over 150 years old! I keep finding things like this. I will post more later.
