19th Century Capen & Molineux 'Top Hat' #3 Fluid Lamp
This is a rare antique pewter fluid lamp by Capen & Molineux of New York and dates from 1848-1854. The original lid and burner would have been pewter just like the base but it has been replaced with a tin burner with a cork base instead of the screw down pewter lid. The replacement burner is from the same time period and was probably replaced when the pewter burner was burnt through and no longer useable. The price reflects the change in burner. It is still a very nice rare fluid lamp for your collection. It is 4.5" tall.
