    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

      Your oil lamp is awesome!!!!!!!!
    2. Janet, 11 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

      I have a wedding lamp. The bowls are blue and the base is white. I was told it is from1800 and it is rare. I am not sure how to post a picture of it.
    21. drioux2616, 2 years ago
      I have 3 of them - one clear, one blue with white base and on white with blue base. Would love to find one with a cover for the match holder. The lids are very hard to come by as many were broken over the years. Have seen one with a blue cover.
