Customer Question

Customer: We have a Fostoria oil lamp with a patent date of 1895. It has roses on it and a larger globe with chimney under which is a smaller base. We were wondering what the value is. It is in excellent shape with no cracks or chips.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The top globe is 34" and the bottom is 27". The patent date is April 1895.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Antiques Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yes
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
