This is the clear version of the Crown Crystal Glass Six Star finger lamp. Surprisingly, this is the first clear one we have had. In the past we have had the green uranium glass version of this lamp and a citrine All Over Stars finger lamp but not a clear glass one. Unlike the other two though, this one no longer has its original Blixten burner. These little lamps have an applied handle so they can be easily carried from room to room. Ideal for when going to bed.

Here we have a pair of clear glass Australian Late Petal kerosene lamps. The lamps were made by Crown Crystal Glass Co. in Sydney and were in constant production for many years  between the wars. The glass is thick and the lamps are quite heavy compared to lamps made prior to World War I. They are certainly very stable and I think they would have been almost indestructible. Perhaps that is why so many of them are still around now.

We are unsure of the age of this sweet amethyst glass finger oil lamp. It appears to be hand blown as there are no mould lines and it has many of the attributes of an antique glass lamp. That said though, the pontil mark is so smooth it is almost non-existent and there are no signs of any shelf wear. There again, the collar has developed a patina that generally only comes with age. The lamp could have been made recently or it could have been made in the 1940s but hardly used.

The Edward Miller & Co. catalogue from 1881 included a lamp that is essentially the same as this one. The lamp still retains most of its original finish, though some copper is showing through around the lower edge.

This green glass finger lamp is a bit of a mystery to us. We found it in a book that suggested it was German or Belgian circa 1910 but we’re not so sure. The majority of the lamps from that region take a Kosmos burner rather than a flat wick burner. The collar is more like those used in North America but the style of the lamp and the colour of the green glass just doesn’t have quite the right look to be from there. As we said, a bit of a mystery.

The name of the font pattern for this antique oil lamp is Panelled Fern. It dates to the 1870s and was made with a variety of stands from all glass to a marble base with brass stem. It is interesting to note that the pattern was also called Hammond when it was made at Sandwich. The stand used with the Panelled Fern font for this lamp is black painted cast iron and the pattern compliments the font nicely.

As yet, we haven’t been able to identify the maker of this little ribbed glass antique oil lamp. It has a simple design with horizontal ribs around the font, a plain stem and radiating ribs or icicles on the base. The same lamp is shown on page 89 fig.(g) of Catherine Thuro’s first book “Oil Lamps – The Kerosene Era in North America”. She dates this and similar ribbed glass lamps to the 1860s.

So far, we have been unable to identify the pattern of this EAPG (Early American Patterned Glass) oil lamp. However it does show characteristics that are similar to the Erin Fan pattern. The style of the stands, shape of the fonts and the dimensions of the lamps are all similar but this one lacks the sharp detail of the Erin Fan.

It's hard to be sure how old this EAPG oil lamp is but the presence of straw marks in the glass and the wear on the base suggest it dates to
