      I know next to nothing. I think it's a Victorian parlour lamp. the font is either milk glass or cased glass (I cant tell from the picture) It has a duplex (twin) burner. Is there nothing on the of the turning wheels? the column cleaned up would look wonderful. Take a piece of paper the same width as the wick openings of the burner and turn it up with the wheel to see if the teeth are biting properly. If so good to go. If you measure the distance over the ring I may well have an old chimney you can have, have a box of them
