This National Glass Co. oil lamp is 9" high, minus the burner, and the bowl is 6" in diameter and the foot 7" in diameter. It weighs 4 lbs. There are no maker marks, patent marks, etc., on the body of the lamp. I have the chimney for it, as well. It has a Scovill Mfg. Co. Queen Anne No. 2 burner.
This is a fancy pressed glass lamp, with a lot of detail, probably something which would be found in an upper class Victorian home. It has one of the largest bowls of the lamps in my collection of 40, or so, oil lamps. It would probably burn for about 20-25 hours on one bowl of fuel, possibly longer. It would be a great lamp for a common user area, like a living room, since it will burn for a long time, but doesn't have a fill plug on the font. I suspect that it once had a shade.
I definitely don't need any more oil lamps and it has been quite a while since I bought one, but this one was so nice, in perfect condition and all original, with a price tag of $9.99. It was a bargain at that price. When I was paying for it, I realized it had a half off tag on it so I ended up paying $5.40 total for it. No way I could pass it by.
