I found this...

Post by pitchik on Sat May 12, 2012 1:58 pm

At a local antique store. It is fairly cheap, but is only one piece. It has the hole in the top like a Fairy Lamp would but nobody seems to know what it is...

Yes, it is a part to an opium lamp.


An opium lamp is an oil lamp designed specifically to facilitate the vaporization and inhalation of opium. Opium lamps differ from conventional lamps for lighting in that they are designed to channel an exact amount of heat upward through their funnel-shaped chimneys. An opium pipe, its pipe-bowl primed with a small dose of opium known as a "pill," was held over the opium lamp causing the opium to vaporize and allowing the smoker to inhale the vapors.

Hi, I saw you post about the lamp globe that was accurately identified as an Opium globe. I have a base but have been looking for the globe, do you have it or can you put me in touch with who does as I would like to buy it.
Thanks,
Kevin

Kevin,

The original poster of this item is automatically notified of your inquiry. They will likely contact you if they have an interest in selling the shade.
