A little more info about the company below, Bradley & Hubbard: The discovery of oil in Pennsylvania in 1859 had a great impact on the product line of Bradley & Hubbard with the decision to begin production of kerosene burning lamps.
By 1871, kerosene virtually replaced whale oil for heating and illumination and new ways of burning it more efficiently were needed. Between 1868 and 1875, Bradley and Hubbard secured 33 patents relating to the design and mechanics of oil burning lamps (in all, the company would eventually patent a total of 238 designs and mechanical devices).
The company was again reorganized in 1875, this time as a joint stock company renamed The Bradley and Hubbard Manufacturing Company.
