Back from the days before electric light bulbs there were oil lamps. Up here they are still used as the electricity goes out often.
This one has an Eagle burner. The lamp has an amber base with a clear fuel section. Most likely it is about 100 years old although it could be from the 1920s or 30s.
I had been using the smokeless oil in it which tends to make about as much light as a dull match. Put the good smoke filled stuff in it and it made the light for the last photo.
