I'm out of my comfort zone on this one so need the help of the community. Found this along with some other pieces in a coal/ storage shed that I was picking ( will post the other pieces soon). By the identification on the knob I found out it was made by the Angle Lamp Co. , I have never seen a kerosene lamp like this before. It is missing the cap from the tank, and has no wick. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Angle lamps were the first lamps that allowed the light to shine down. This was repeated in the gas lamps by the invention of the Welsbach burners which also allowed the light to be directed down. It wasn't until the Electric light fixture that the advantages of this really were accepted on a wide basis. The first angle lamp I found had a beautifully embossed body, and etched elbow shade and a plain white top shade. I have seen, in the home of a collector of angle lamps large four light ceiling fixtures and lovely wall sconces. Really interesting. Thank you for sharing. Sincerely, Lisa

    Sorry Walksoftly, I know gas and early electric and shades but Oil is not my thing. I am familiar with Angle lamps accidentally. I found a great etched elbow shade and from there I got a chimney and a lovely little single sconce and I met an angle lamp collector at a show I used to do and was invited to see his collection. So one day I had a great treat and he showed us his lights, and his other collections and we had lunch. It was a lovely day and what I managed to remember of that day I shared with you. The best books on Oil lamps were done by a fellow countryman of ours. She lives in Toronto. I have both her books in my library Thuro is her name. As far as burners etc. I am sorry but I don't know one from the other. When I started the world and his wife were dealing in Oil so I wanted to do gas and early electric. I had been a Social Worker so I came into the game late and thought I might do better by narrowing my field of interest. So oil got scratched. There are some good sights for information out there though I think. Sorry I can't be of more use.

    Hi walksoftly! What you have found is a true ANGLE LAMP that was advertized by the company as their number 100 model. It was considered a utility lamp. This is a direct quote from their advertizing at the time: " This No. 100 lamp is our cheapest style-still is a very good one. Unlike all the rest of our line it has no inner fount yet it is just as good for light having the same burner, globe and top as well as all the others. It is used in garages, outhouses, kitchens, cellars, etc. For such purposes there is no lamp that can be compared with it. The splendid light that it gives, is all thrown downward and outward." The # 100 was available in tin or brassed and the capacity was 1 quart. Burns for 16.00 hours and cost $2.00 at the time. I will add photos of other Angle Lamps including Lisa-lighting's Brass Angle Lamp in my LOUMANAL page, just click on my user name. RER (BOB)
