Oil Lamp Chimneys are commonly sized with 3" base to fit # 2 lamp burners, a widely used burner on many oil lamps. 8-1/2" height. Clear glass provides bright light.
When selecting replacement lamp chimneys: first determine chimney base diameter, known as the fitter. It is measured outside edge to outside edge across the bottom.

Made of borosilicate glass, ideal for lighting as it is resistant to temperature changes.
Glass is thin, very similar to many antique chimneys; use care when placing in burner/holder, do not force.
Reminiscent of vintage glass, occasional slight imperfections are normal as glass fabrication often produces minor variations in appearance, overall size and thickness of glass.
Actual glass size and appearance may slightly differ from what is pictured.

7" Glass Shades will not fit over bulge
Use Torpedo Shaped Light Bulbs inside glass lamp chimneys. These bulbs consume less space allowing more air to circulateare around bulb. This reduces heat build up from incandescant light bulb.
Chimneys are reminiscent of old glass: measurements are close approximates. Occasional slight imperfections and mold marks are normal and not defects.
Chimneys are measured bottom diameter by height.

- Height is a matter of personal taste. Typically the oil lamp chimney extends up thru the middle of the lamp shade and rises 2″-4″ above the top of the shade.
- Bottom Diameter: is measured outside edge to outside edge. This measurement is important as it must fit the holder or burner. Most burners have a narrow seat for chimney to rest on. Particular care should be taken if the lamp is used to burn oil making sure the oil lamp chimney bottom fits securely.
- Lamp chimneys sit in a burner with tines or a chimney holder. The inside diameter of the tines or holder dictates the base diameter of the lamp chimney. Measure this inside diameter of where a proper fitting chimney sits. This can be an awkard area to measure. It is best measured with calibers to get an accurate measurement. To test: cut a ring from paper the 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.
