Chimney - Magic Lantern Projector , Lampascope, circa 1899 Reg. No: HT 3805 3
- Glass chimney for use with table lamp and lantern projector from the Francis Collection. The distinctive 'pinch' in the chimney helped with air flow and was a feature of the 'Kosmos' burner, developed by the Berlin company of Wild and Wessel in 1865. This kerosene burner utilizes a flat wick which is folded into a tube. In 1899 the company was taken over by Brökelmann, Jaeger & Co. The logo on the wick winder knob dates the base of the lantern from this latter period.
- Clear glass chimney for attachment to oil lamp burner. Wider at bottom to fit into burner, grade off into standard glass tube.
