Oil-Wick Cap Lamp

Description
The lamp was manufactured by J. Anton and Son of Monongahela, Pennsylvania between 1905 and 1918. J. Anton and Son marketed their lamps under the trade name of U.S.A. Eagle, and there is an image of an eagle impressed on the lamp. Around the eagle is the engraving “U.S.A EAGLE / JANTON & SON / MONONGAHELA, PA.” The lamp’s long spout has a circular bezel to protect wearer’s cap from drippings.
