Glass and metal
Overall: 10 x 3 x 3 in. ( 25.4 x 7.6 x 7.6 cm )
Green pressed lead glass oil lamp; domed conical font impressed with six vertical rows of 3 block and circular printie patterns with flattened knop joined by wafer to octagonal baluster on square plinth; pewter threaded collar with pewter and tin flared double wick holder that does not fit and is probably not original.
The dome of the font was formed with the Magoun patent method. Developed by Joseph Magoun of the New England Works in 1847, this method eliminated mold marks by using a hinged, three-part mold to form the body of the font and a one-piece cylindrical mold to form a cylinder that was then tooled to form the dome.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
