Possibly a windproof candle lantern.

Yep. that's my guess also.

Hmmmm- need more pics of that one, and something for scale.

Some sort of lamp, looks like the mantel, or the globe is missing

Dang, hoss, where you coming up with all this stuff?

The "wax" might be residue...

Almost looks like an old check valve fixture on an old boiler , radiator heating system...? Is there a piece of rope down in the wax or old grease..?

it 5" tall. made of aluminum.
maybe an early camping bug candle?

Does the base look like it friction fits into a receptacle?

Axxe55 05-03-2013 04:26 AM

given the small holes, maybe it uses those smaller citronella candles. used as a bug deterent?

the small holes and the overall size, i don't see it being used as a latern.
