Time lamps are much like today's night lights; mainly used in bedrooms. Hour numerals are pressed into the glass reservoir. As the kerosene burned overnight, the diminishing fuel was supposed to indicate the time.
There are measurements along the side and the some embossed writing - TIME & LIGHT - PRIDE OF AMERICA - GRAND VALS PERFECT TIME INDICATING LAMP. No wick but the turner turns easily, I believe it would work. Shade is 2 tall and has a top diameter of 1. It is white with a luster finish.
A little dirty inside but I see no damage other than a few very tiny flea bites on bottom of shade. Please view all photos and zoom in for best description.
