    This is a very heavy Kerosene lamp that was rewired to make a lamp. I see no markings and am not sure what type of metal it is or finish on top? Appreciate any words of wisdom. Thanks Gail

    1. LOUMANAL LOUMANAL, 6 years ago
      The Metal is SPELTER (white Metal) with a brass collar and double wick burner that is not native to this lamp. These large burners were mostly used on large tin barn lamps and were made by plume & Atwood of Waterbury, Conn. In it's original days, it would have had a Galllery Type Burner that would have held a fancy Glass Ball or other shaped & etched Shade. The lamp is possibly made by Bradley & Hubbard.....I will look it up in my reference books and get back to you if I find it. RER (BOB)

      Thank you Bob so much for this information. Do you knows it from the late 1800's or early 1900's?
