Only one week after purchasing this book I spotted an Oil Lamp in an antique shop in Bournemouth, England and I bought it at a bargain price knowing from reading this book that it was a 1904 German "Bismark" Lamp!

By Dennis Hearn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is Ms. Thuro's companion book to Oil Lamps I. The focus here is on rare cased glass, colored glass and composite kerosene lamps and in combination with Oil Lmaps I, is a valued addition to a complete study of the kerosene lamp. 1998 Price Guide

4.0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Reference for Cased Glass Lamps 12 Jan 2009
By J. Sampson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is by far a favorite of mine personally. It covers in great detail the incredible cased glass lamps by the likes of Boston Sandwich and others. I found the price guide easy to use for what its worth. Clear sharp photos. A must for the appraiser.
