Kath, I said "most of them..." not, "all of them".  Some did not have glass inserts. 

Dianne measurements would help and are supposed to be included in your description. 

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on July 25, 2014 at 1:50pm

OK, so it's for a bicycle. But Craig's pic shows a wick, and a carbide light uses carbide chips and water which creates a gas which goes through a valve and is lit, creating light.  There wouldn't be a wick on a carbide lamp, would there?

Dianne add measurements it looks tiny ? not sure how it would have a glass insert it thats a pen next to it - ?????

I found this lovely little tea/ coffee set  service for 6   

Bareuther Barvaria Germany US Zone   

I think it was quite a find for only $5 at an estate sale

thanks ar8jason 

this is the burner on the bicycle lamp


Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on July 23, 2014 at 7:51pm

Dianne, you have a brass or bronze tazza; most of them have a fancy glass insert that fits into it. Used primarily as a Centerpiece on a table.  It is not an egg holder...Link shows many different styles and values.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on July 23, 2014 at 1:56pm

Craig, I don't think your light is for a bicycle, but rather a small boat.  The red and green jewels probably illuminate when lit. At nighttime seeing the red running light (or the green) will tell you which way the boat is moving.  They are positioned on or near the bow (front) of the boat so you can tell where the front is too.  Modern boats likewise use red/green running lights.  The  stern light is white.

I'd guess a value around $300+ would be closer--but tis a guess.


Comment by Jon D Scarborough on July 21, 2014 at 4:24pm

so, is it glass, metal or ceramic, how tall?

Comment by DIANE PELL on July 21, 2014 at 2:33pm

Does anyone know what this is? I do believe it is a mini egg holder but what kind? The wording underneath is muted badly. Thanks!
