Edward Miller Lamps

There are several excellent websites with information on Miller lamps, such as:

Edward Miller & Company of Meriden, CT. USA

and a website from Germany > edward-miller-petroleumlampen.de

I have photographs of many Miller lamps, a clock and some heaters which are not illustrated on other websites, so herewith are some photos.  Click on the photos to enlarge them in a separate window.

Note that the column is similar to a Miller No. 55 Duplex Study Lamp font!  Owned and photographed by Olaf Bunge of edward-miller-petroleumlampen.de
An exceedingly rare Miller "Mill Lamp."  No other photos or references to this lamp can be found.  It may be a ''one-off'' unique lamp!  Owned and photographed by Rob Hazelton
Miller made heaters!

An early Miller Heater made by using a store lamp font with a modified burner. Note the cast base in the photo at far right.  That base was also used for store lamps to sit in a table rather than a hanging frame and enabled the wick riser rod to lower beneath the foot on the font.  This particular Miller burner was modified to use what became the standard twist-knob method of wick raising.
