Brass floor lamp with glass kerosene reservoir, shade, and chimney. (a) Lamp stand is in the form of a stylized bird of prey standing on a single elongated, scaly leg; an oversized foot with talons forms the base. Attached to the bird's crown is a squat, spherical kerosene reservoir of amber hobnail glass. A circular coronet-style burner screws into the neck ring of the reservoir. (b) Blue hobnail glass shade sits atop the stand; bowl-shaped form flares out to scalloped rim. (c) Colorless glass baluster-shaped chimney fits into cylindrical holder around burner and within blue shade.
