    I found this oil lamp base at a yard sale. It actually had a top screwed on they must of had it electric for a bit. I would like to find the right top to make oil once again. My problem is the screws seem to go the wrong way. So European? I would love any suggestions on how to fix this wonderful beauty. Back to her wondrous working ways. I'm guessing possibly had a ball shade. Is there somewhere online I can buy the right pieces? Thanks for any help, happy Sunday!

      Yes, probably European. Check out oillamparts.com, click on Burners, click on Kosmos. He has 5 sizes, just check the measurements.....Great lamp!

      Thanks so much! I will look into that. I'll repost once I get it figured out.

      My pleasure; forgot to mention, he has the chimneys to match them as well. Good luck, hope one of them fits. I'm never happy until I can get them fired up.

      I know!! I agree they need to be fired up before I'm happy with them!
