A HARD TO FIND ORIGINAL ART DECO OIL KEROSENE "FARMOR LAMP" MODEL A 1930s SIMILAR TO ALADDIN LAMPS. The stem is stained walnut. The lamp is called "The Farmor Lamp", that was put out through Sears & Roebuck Co. In the 1930's as a competitor to the Aladdin Lamp. The lamp was a short lived item by "Farmor Lamp" through Sears & Roebuck Co.
So this is a super rare piece and hard to find. This lamp was the favorite design of the "Farmor Lamp" company founder, Bill Keller. The burner is comprised of three pieces, and there is also a wick attached. We have researched and found that others have been able to fit an Aladdin flame spreader and had it fit perfectly, as well as an Aladdin chimney. BUT PLEASE PERFORM YOUR ON RESEARCH AND DO NOT RELY SOLELY ON OUR INFORMATION.The lamp looks like it should hold 1 quart of kerosene. The lamp measures 12 1/2" tall from base to the top of the burner and the font and base are both 6" wide. The fuel cap screws on and off with ease. The patent engraving reads: MODEL A Pat. THERE APPEARS THERE MAY BE A SMALL DENT OR DING ON THE BOTTOM PORTION BUT VERY SMALL TO REALLY NOTICE. THE INSIDE OF OIL STORAGE TANK IS DRY. IT APPEARS THERE IS SOME SMALL TYPE OF CORROSION INSIDE AS WE ARE TOLD THIS IS NORMAL FROM BEING USED.
WE DO NOT NO IF THE BURNER OPERATES PROPERLY SINCE WE HAVE NOT TESTED IT. IT APPEARS THERE IS A SMALL DENT ON THE TOP PORTION OF BURNER WHICH DOES NOT LOOK LIKE IT WILL AFFECT THE USAGE BUT WE ARE UNCERTAIN. THERE MAY BE LIGHT SURFACE SCRATCHES AND SOME SMALL IMPERFECTIONS BUT OVERALL IN GREAT SHAPE AND LOOKS VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF. THERE LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A FULL WICK ATTACHED BUT NOT SURE HOW IT WORKS. THE CHIMNEY IS NOT INCLUDED.MAY NEED A LIGHT CLEANING TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS.
