    HELLO! What is it made of? Is it magnetic? How tall is it? How wide is it? One picture says little. You want help give us something to work with. Are there any markings? Go back and read the guidelines and come back. When you get here I have some ocean front property in Kansas for sale if you are in the market. Just a small down payment and easy monthly payments.

    its hard to say. because im thinking like an old outside lamp. people at work said old top to a farm like gas pump. its steel. heavy....what you see is what you get. glass and steel and the top knob is removable. and theres a hole at the bottom the size of a silver doller

    Are you saying the center part is glass? If it is, it is hard to tell from the photos because it so dirty. Again demensions? We are only as good as the information we have to work with.

    It's hollow. Just glass sides with steel frame. Maybe 8 to ten inches wide. The glass is about 1/4 of an inch thick

    If it is vented around the top, it could be an old gas lamp.

    If u look at the picture on the far right. You can see the four little deals sticking up. Then one that looks off set Which u can pull out. The 3rd picture is looking into the hole on the top and u can see a hole at the bottom
