This vintage alcohol burner has all the looks of an antique, but I can not be sure. The bottom has a large pontil but sources have told me that this is probably not a blown glass item. The snuffer on the top is made of copper and the outside of the lid is some other kind of metal. A chain attached to the lid keeps the snuffer from being lost or sidetracked. Lines on two sides of the glass run all the way up to the top of the jar.
The sideways slant of the burner makes me think it was used as a specialized tool in a lab. Not sure about that either.
This alcohol burner is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks in the glass. The metal lid has darkened, but it comes off easily. There is still lots of wick left plus it is very clean inside, making me think it was not used or seldom used.
The measurements of this burner are:
4 and 1/2 inches high including the slanted burner part.
3 and 1/4 inches high not including the slanted burner part.
2 and 1/4 inches across the base
This very old vintage alcohol burner would be a great addition to a collection.
