Here's a scarce Beaded Flowers pattern antique kerosene oil lamp made in the 1870s or 1880s. It has its original threaded brass collar, brass emb burner and glass chimney. This wonderful early lamp has two types of flowers around the font with beaded rings above and below.....
Fancy sunken thumbprints around base with fluted ribs around underside of base and inside surface of hollow paneled stem.... Hand pressed or blown in 3 part mold with base & font made separate and fused together at the glass factory.....8 3/4"tall to collar (18"counting burner & chimney)..... Excellent shiny nice condition with no chips or damage.
A nice clean lamp with only a bit of faint residue in bottom. Original brass collar is perfect.
Early solid brass burner is emb QUEEN ANNE , STEEL MANTLE, TOLEDO, OHIO on top side. It turns the wick up and down, but wick needs to be oiled as it is pretty tight. This is a great looking early oil lamp in a scarce pattern.

The beautiful amethyst or purple color of this glass is a result of the presence of manganese in the glass, which was a decolorizer to turn the glass clear. Glass that contains manganese, when exposed to ultraviolet rays of the sun or other sources of UV rays, causes the glass to turn amethyst. Some of my amethyst bottles and glass are purpled from years of exposure to natural sunlight. Others have been purpled with the use of strong UV lights in a boxand some have been purpled by running them through a water sterilization plant, which is a safe and permanent process which does the same thing as many years of exposure to natural sunlight, except much faster.
To those "purists" who falsely believe that glass cannot turn this deep amethyst color naturally, I could take you to places where bottles and glass have turned this same shade of purple from being in the sunlight for many years.
