The Oil Lamp

This oil lamp belonged to my grandmother, Mary Anna,.....who used it over the years as a night lamp when she would check on her children ( twelve of them )...during the night.!!

I really would like to know the stories it could reveal. It is my favorite "grandma piece" and is only about a six inch base and a very small globe top Her first child was born in 1898 and the last of the twelve in 1924. My mother was born in 1913...sort of in the middle of the bunch!
