      I have one of these. I have had it for more than 30 years. I use it a lot summer evenings with citronella lamp or torch oil. The light is very pleasant. Like a soft glow of candles. Bonus is it repels mosquitos. Unfortunately I dropped it a few years ago and broke the glass chimney. I am always looking for a replacement. If you know if one please let me know. I only wish I had bought several of these. What happened that they are no longer available?
    2. Collectomaniac Collectomaniac, 5 years ago
      No longer available because they are made with quality materials and built to last.
      Maybe aghcollect can come up with a globe/chimney number for you off the box or on the globe itself.

      Sorry it took so long to get back to you, it is 2.4" in dimeter at the outside and is 3" tall.

      Did you ever find a new chimney? Mines cracked and I'd like to find a replacement.
    7. Ratrev, 2 years ago
      jerdog53 any luck on finding a replacement. I shattered my chimney and was going to start calling to see if I can get a replacement figured glass supply or glass blower.
