This lamp is 12" tall. Thrift shop find today, for $8. It has a Plume & Atwood Thomaston marked #2 Eagle burner. It appears to be unused. At first, I thought it had been restored, due to the putty visible around the collar, but I found the same thing on unused L. E. Smith lamps on ebay. The shade is thick glass, so woe be unto he/she who breaks their shade. I'm sure a generic replacement shade will work, but it would probably be really loose. Judging by what I see on ebay, the alignment of the knob for turning the wick up and down is all over the place on these lamps. The knob is very near the handle on this lamp. Still, a very nice lamp.
