Kerosene lamp in delicate "sun purple" is a Victorian era classic vintage glass piece! This clear glass oil or kerosene lamp has a slight violet tint due to the age of the glass, the content of manganese in the glass (and the absence of lead) and sun exposure, an effect known as "sun purple".
This uncharacteristically plain vintage glass oil lamp lacks the overt decoration synonymous with the Victorian era, it is a refreshingly simplistic style that swings eclectic, even modern! With a flat cotton wick and large fuel reservoir, this handsome sun purple lamp will glow nicely in any setting. This Victorian era staple is in excellent condition.
Lamp size measures: 8"Diameter x 19"H
