Brass oil lamp with light relector and orignial wick. Knob that turns wick still works. Long glass globe used to protect the flame
The plate that is supposed to help reflect the light has a hook at the top so that it can be hung on a wall or it can be detached from the lamp base and the lamp set on a table without it. Knob that turns wick still works. It is missing its glass globe.
