    The beginning of an addiction...

    I believe the one on the left is Canadian?
    The middle one is starting to turn purple - love it!
    and I really know nothing about the patterns, age of any of them... But I loved them and instead of getting bogged down in researching and buying only what's "valuable" I decided to start with what I like.

      Turning purple is due to manganese in the glass. Set it in the sun. It'll turn more purple over time.

      Nice lamps! I don't have access to my Thuro reference books but someone will be able to name them for you because they are all 3 in Thuro's "Oil lamps " The kerosene era in America volume1 . The first one was made in Canada as you stated and is the Canadian Bulls Eye pattern.

      It's not a beginning of the addiction... You are already addicted! :) Nice
