Notes

Summary:
Teardrop-shaped lamp has a high conical handle rising from the upper surface of the lamp on the side opposite from the nozzle. The nozzle is formed at the point. The fill hole is surrounded by a double ridge that leads to the nozzle. The upper surface of the nozzle is broken away. Raised bars decorate the upper surface between the perimeter of the lamp and the outmost ridge around the fill hole. The design is sometimes referred to as bilanciolate. The base is an oval ridge. Black discoloration at the nozzle indicates use.
