Glass chimney for use with table lamp and lantern projector from the Francis Collection. The distinctive 'pinch' in the chimney helped with air flow and was a feature of the 'Kosmos' burner, developed by the Berlin company of Wild and Wessel in 1865. This kerosene burner utilizes a flat wick which is folded into a tube. In 1899 the company was taken over by Brökelmann, Jaeger & Co. The logo on the wick winder knob dates the base of the lantern from this latter period.
