Vintage Antique Finish Pony Express Oil Lamp
This VintageAntique Finish Pony Express style oil lantern is very heavily constructed from solid brass with a nice finish, giving it an authentic vintage character. Something you would expect to see on the desk of a Pony Express Messenger preparing for thier long journey ahead to deliver the mail. It has an attached loop located on the top of the lantern for easy hanging. The lantern is complete with a reflector hood, glass chimney, and wick. Attached to the reflector hood is a copper tag that reads: Pony Express EST. 1860 Property of C.O.C & P.P. Express Company. It stands 21" tall by 12" wide.
To fill this lantern the burner unscrews from the top of the oil reservoir. Please note that this oil lamp is being sold for decorative purposes only. It is not cleaned or checked before it is shipped. If you plan to actually burn the lamp, then we first suggest cleaning it, filling the reservoir with lamp oil and placing the lamp in a utility tub overnight to be sure that it doesn't leak oil prior to setting it on a desk or other piece of good furniture. Keep out of the reach of children.
