I picked up from an estate sale many years ago, can't find anything on interent about these types of oil lamps. It is dated on the glass 1870, but the burner says 1867. Thanx

Mystery Solved

    Your oil lamp is awesome!!!!!!!!
  2. Janet, 7 years ago
    This lamp is what's called a "Marriage Lamp" or "Wedding Lamp". Based on the picture's resemblance to the picture on pg. 187 of Oil Lamps: The Kerosene Era in North America, I believe it to be made by Ripley. You should expect between $750 and $1250 at auction.

    Thank you Janet for the information, that is great news. I will pass this lamp down to my children. Thanx

    This is only the second one of these Marriage lamps I have seen. I passed up buying one years ago and have regretted it ever since. Lucky find!
