Vintage Antique Collectible White Flame Light

Clear Glass Hurricane Oil Lamp

Grand Rapids, Michigan:

 

ABOUT THIS LAMP:

White Flame Light

"A simple attempt to adjust his mother's oil lamp led to a small shoestring business which grew into a company with international agents.

"One night Victor Blandford’s mother stated that either her eyesight was getting dim or the light from the oil lamp was inadequate. She found it difficult to read by the yellow light. Victor, who was 16 and attending McLaughlin’s Business College at the time, took a look at the wick. He trimmed it, but no difference. He tinkered with it. Then he punched holes in the base of the burner and added small brads on the rim to raise the chimney just enough to admit air. Finally, he cut, by hand, a mantle of steel and inserted it around the wick. The mantle vaporized the oil by adding heat and mixing oxygen with the oil to give out a white light.

"His mother was utterly pleased with the result and her neighbors were quite envious. Victor made a few more mantles, still using the old Queen Anne base. Business was on a shoestring, but he was in business and worked on it Saturdays and weekends.

"Victor carried a black case containing his light and an old Queen Anne burner to demonstrate the difference to farmers in the area. Soon he commissioned agents in many places—burners were now manufactured from dies in Connecticut, shipped in carload lots to Grand Rapids where they were assembled, and sent to all parts of the United States, Canada and foreign countries. Solving his mother’s problem resulted in Victor’s thriving business."

GOT QUESTIONS?
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. We are happy to answer our customers!


RETURN POLICY:
14 day return policy. We take great pride in making sure our customers are satisfied. We know you will be MORE than satisfied with any of our items! We always reveal any and all issues with each item to the very best of our knowledge. Please notice our feedback score of 100%, and feel safe buying from us. This item, if returned, must come back in the same condition in which it was dispatched.

Buyers are more comfortable shopping with sellers who offer returns, even though most buyers will never return an item. We've found that items with clear return policies typically sell better than items that don't.

The eBay returns process gives buyers an efficient way to return an item for a refund or a replacement. A replacement is an item that is exactly the same as the original item. Exchanges—for a different size or color, for example—are not supported by the return process. Our return policy of 14 days with money back, where the buyer pays return shipping, is very standard and per eBay requirements. A buyer starts the return process. We get an email letting us know that the buyer has started a return. For refunds: Per eBay policy, we issue a refund within 6 business days of receiving the returned item. For replacements: Per eBay policy, we ship the replacement within 5 business days of the buyer starting the return process. Per eBay policy, we ask the buyer to pack the item carefully and return it in the same condition as it was received. If you need to return an item, be sure to follow these item condition guidelines. Learn more about the item condition policy for returns here: http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/return-item-condition.html

According to eBay, standardized category return guidelines create a more consistent experience for both buying and selling by eliminating the uncertainty of what's acceptable to return and what isn't.

Per eBay policy guidelines: "When the buyer ships the item back, eBay provides the buyer with a return shipping label. They also give the buyer a packing slip to print and enclose in the return package. A unique return ID generated by eBay appears on the packing slip, along with the buyer's ID. The return label will use US Postal Service (USPS) Parcel Select, First-Class or Priority Mail, whichever is the most appropriate based on cost, package weight and delivery time. Delivery Confirmation is automatically included so both the buyer and the seller can track the status of the return shipment. Signature confirmation is also included if the item is valued at or more than $750. For refunds: eBay asks the buyer to ship the item back to the seller within 5 business days of starting the return. For replacements: eBay asks the buyer to ship the item back to the seller within 5 business days of starting the return. They'll start sending the buyer reminders after 5 business days, and they'll charge the buyer for the second item after 30 days."


******************* This item is not new *******************


It is a vintage/antique, meaning a pre-owned estate item. It may have wear due to its vintage nature, which just adds to its beauty!


All of our vintage pieces come from estate sales and are not new (unless otherwise stated). They may have slight wear or scuffs that we do not feel deters from the beauty of the piece but rather adds to its character and beauty. Such traits are common in vintage pieces.

Others may not have the same opinion. We therefore strive to mention everything we see and to take good photos detailing each piece thoroughly. The photos are part of the description of the items we sell. So please use the very cool eBay ZOOM FEATURE on the photos for full visual details. We try hard to detail all we see. 

We do not guarantee that the vintage item may work, (e.g. trains, camera, mechanical items, etc.). It is an "AS IS" sale. Many times we do not have the ability to bench test the item. Even if we were able at the time to bench test an item, the process of shipping the antique may then impede the antique's ability to work. So please look closely at the photos and description. We do detail all that we see, good and otherwise.

We sell vintage because we love it, along with all it's imperfections. This to us reinforces its vintage history
