BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN INTO THE DESCRIPTION AND LOOK ABOVE AND BELOW FOR MORE PHOTOS Here is a very nice, and scarce example of a clear and opalescent striped miniature oil lamp made by Hobbs Glass Company of Wheeling, West Virginia. In June of 1886 Hobbs Glass Co. Acquired a patent for the "Manufacture of Opalescent Glass ware, " and this little lamp is one example, and would date from the late 1880's to 1890's. This clear and opal lamp is a little more unusual or different from other ones you may see, in the fact that the opalescence has bled or blended into the clear to give the lamp more of a warm and creamy opal look, and gives the lamp a very attractive effect. The lamp has an acorn burner with wick. No damage to the burner, wick wheel turns the wick up and down freely. Burner and collar of the lamp appear to be original. The shade is in excellent condition, factory ground both top and bottom with no damage to either end no chips, cracks, nicks, flakes. The base is in excellent condition as well, free of any chips or cracks etc.
Overall, a very fine miniature kerosene oil lamp. It measures 3 3/8" tall to top of the collar, 4 5/8" tall to top of burner, and overall 6 1/8 tall to the top of the shade.
