I can not find any makers marks on this one. It uses 3 prongs to mount. The wick fits into a well to help prevent sloshing. Someone, sometime in the past has re soldered the joint around the sides. Any ideas?
Thanks

Rats! I was hoping it would fit the Dietz oil lamps from my gasoline carriage. But the three pins don't look right for them. My lamps don't look like they ever had anything very good for holding the fonts, burners, or bowl in place. Maybe that is why they are both missing?
So I guess that I cannot help you very much.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I have no clue. 3 prongs are unusual. I presume you have looked closely at the burner adjusting wheel. I can't tell from the photo but they did put names there on some lamps. I assume the burner screws in rather than being a bayonet like E & J's. Of course some burners were interchangeable and wouldn't prove the font make.
sorry.

No name on the wick adjustment wheel and yes the burner screws in. The name may have been on the burner cover that is missing.
