Here is a stunning antique miniature oil lamp measuring 8-1/2 inches tall and approximately 3 inches wide. The beautiful hand blown lamp features a triple layer design that includes a solid white glass interior layer and the clear glass outer layer, encasing the center spatter or end of day glass completely.The outer layer is ribbed and then twisted, with the shade having polished rims on both top and bottom, and the base having applied clear glass feet. One of the feet has a flake off the outer side (pictured). It is very difficult to see, is not in front of the lamp, and does not affect the lamp's leveling, stability or appearance. The burner appears to be complete, although there is no wick and I have not tested it.
This beautiful example of an early miniature cased glass lamp is the perfect accent piece, and is also an amazing collector's piece. Please review the photos for a complete description.
