Copper "oil torch" with ornate fluid (kerosene?) chamber (6 inch diameter). Overall height is 2 ft.. Horizontal portion of copper tubing, with control valve, is 8 inches to burner. From the control valve to the burner the copper tubing contains small charcoal like rocks isolated by fine mesh copper screens. Details about this type lamp are very difficult to find. Found this lamp in Brenham, Texas. but history is unknown. This unit has not been electrified. Battery powered candle has been placed in top of the burner mechanism.
