An Invention of Rare Merit!


The CHIMNEY in common use breaks from unequal expansion and contraction, caused by the upper portion becoming much more highly heated than the lower portion. This constant liability of the Chimney to be broken by being suddenly cooled or "over-heated," is entirely removed by a unique and beautiful invention, BROWN'S METAL TOP LAMP CHIMNEY, which, being made in accordance with the simple law of expansion and contraction, is found to be almost "fire-proof," as far as heating by the flame of the lamp is concerned. The clear, positive superiorities of the NEW LAMP CHIMNEY over the old style, are:

1. It will not crack or break from sudden changes of temperature, or "over-heating."

2. The top can be instantly removed, and the glass wiped perfectly clean in a moment without wetting.

3. It is shorter than the common chimney, therefore less liable to accidents, and more convenient for carrying about the house; it is of elegant proportions, and a decided ornament to the lamp, which will be found to burn with a clear, steady, and beautiful light. It is really the ideal of perfection in a lamp chimney, and after using one for an evening you will wonder that you could so long tolerate the old expensive style.

A "BROWN'S METAL TOP LAMP CHIMNEY" IS WARRANTED, with ordinary care, to last just as long as the lamp on which it is used. Price (with a small neat shade for common size), Zinc top, 25 cents; Brass, 31 cents; Silver-Plated, 50 cents. Dealers will be furnished, per Express, with a sample box containing one half doz. Chimneys assorted styles and sizes, with circulars, colored show cards, price list, &c., on receipt of $1.25. Brown's Metal Top Lamp Chimneys are manufactured only by the

NEW LAMP CHIMNEY MANUFACTURING CO., MILTON BRADLEY, Treasurer, Office and Salesroom, 45 Fulton St., N. Y.
