    I have three items on display in this case. The left lamp is called an Atterbury & Co. Reed Glass Font Oil Lamp from the mid 1800's.
    In the center is a rare oil lamp chimney called a G.M. Bull's Fire Proof Mica Lamp Chimney and I included a photo of the instructions that came with it originally. That chimney is not damaged but is actually made of Mica instead of glass. A really cool and unusual chimney.
    The brass lamp to the far right is a Perkins & House Non Explosive Safety Brass Oil Lamp with patent dates on the font, burner and font cap that date it to the mid 1800's. All of these items are in pristine condition and are incased in order to protect them from damage.

      Thanks Watchsearcher
      I sure wish that I had a correct lamp for it. I'm not sure what it would work right on other than what that instruction paper says on it. I love how they word the instructions.
