We are very pleased to offer this handsome pair of early 1960's vintage Plume & Atwood kerosene lamps featuring Eagle burners, and produced at the Risdon Mfg. facility. Both the amber and clear lamps have stippled style 10 panel fonts, and stylish staged dome bases, finished in lovely floral & twig patterns. The wick knobs are marked P & A, and the burners are stamped Eagle. The overall dimension is 6.25 X 6.25 X 18.25" tall (including chimney), and the total weight is 7#. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Risdon Manufacturing Company of Danbury, CT took over the Plume & Atwood Waterbury plant in the late 1950s. The entire Fabricating Division of P&A was sold to Landers, Frary & Clark in New Britain, Connecticut, who manufactured housewares. Landers, Frary & Clark was subsequently purchased by the J.B. Williams Company of New York, which was then quickly acquired by the General Electric Company Housewares Division in 1965. The Risdon Division, as a wholly owned subsidiary continued to produce P&A burners, including the standard Eagle, and venerable P & A 00 Acorn burners, supplied on Finger lamps, Miniatures made by Fenton Art Glass, and boudoir bed table lamps, right up through the 1970s.
