    It is a Clear Glass Double Globe/Chimney Kerosene Lamp: Eagle brass wick housing; Base is 8" high x 6" dia.; Middle Globe is 8" high x 8' dia.; Chimney is 10" high x 3.5' dia. Total assembled height is approx. 17" high. It give off lots more light than normal single chimney lamps, of which I have about 16 in my small collection.

    Pix show it with our favorite: red wine colored kerosene; which helps give it more color. I don't know much about this lamp, except that it appears rare since I can not find anything about it online (yet) Please help if you can educate me on it, I would very much appreciate it. - eagle7834

      this lamp dates to the 1950's. They are fairly easy to date because they have a screw cap collar. Sorry but it isn't really old and has little value.
