The Lamp Caretaker replied to Laura Santala-Martin's discussion Does this lamp look like it's worth $30?
"I would price this lamp at 15-25.00  The lamp is vintage and looks to be in good condition with no hazing in the liquid.  In other words it's really clear liquid. The flow of these lamps is very boring. This lamp also tips over very…"

The Lamp Caretaker replied to Ant Bee's discussion Trying to crack the original formula- why was kerosene used?
"And it what makes the liquid when you open the bottle smell like KEROSENE.  It's very easily detectable. Most other ingredients in the liquid are antifungals to keep the liquid clean and fresh forever.  "
