Henry Hopper Chamber Oil Pewter Lamp, 1842-1847

This beautiful chamber type lamp has decorative banding, saucer base and ring handle. The lamp stands 4-3/4" tall to
the top of the  burners, with a base diameter of  approximately 4-1/2".

Pewter discoveries are still being made and it has been recently determined that Henry Hopper used more than one
touch mark.  Very similar to his known larger serrated edge touch mark, Henry also had at least one other smaller die,
the die that marked this lamp.  The smaller mark was first published by Dr. Melvyn Wolf in the Vol. 13, No. 6,  Winter
2006 edition of
The Bulletin put out by the Pewter Collectors' Club of America.
