Oil Lamp Chimneysare slimmer than most 10" tall options, having a bulge that is less pronounced. This thinner bulge is ideal for chimney lamp shades. It allows chimney-ring-fitter to slide further down neck, than is possible on most chimneys. This provides best position of shade on lamp. Common size base has three inch diameter. It fits many oil lamps from the turn of the century. Clear glass provides excellent light.*
Our glass lamp chimneys are made of borosilicate glass. This unique glass is resistant to temperature changes making them ideal for lighting.
Vintage-looking Glass Oil Lamp Chimneys
Size and thickness of glass may vary slightly due to manufacturing processes. When multiples are ordered we match size and thickness providing a balanced harmonious appearance.
Glass is thin. Thickness mimics that on many antique chimneys. Use care when placing in burner/holder. Do not force glass chimney into holder.
Height is a matter of personal taste. Typically lamp chimney rises 2″-4″ above top of lamp shade.
Bottom diameter is measured outside edge to outside edge. Most burners have a narrow seat for chimney to rest on.
If having trouble getting an accurate diameter. Test by cutting a ring to needed diameter. Slip down over burner to check fit.
Fit: The chimney should put slight pressure on the tines of the chimney holder or burner which in turn holds the oil lamp chimney in a stable position. This ensures a proper updraft enabling the burner to function correctly. Make sure chimney fits securely if using on an oil lamp.
