Whale oil lantern with its original double wick

Whale oil lantern with its original double wickOld Lamps & Things is fortunate to have a whale oil lantern in our inventory. These lanterns were popular from the late 1700s to the mid-1800s, so fewer and fewer are available in today’s market. Ours has not been converted to electric, and the burner has the standard double wick. The font slides out of the lantern for easy refilling. One glass panel was missing, so we replaced it. The rest of the lamp is original. What a great piece for the whale oil lamp collectors out there — or for people who just like good quality from the olden days!
