Default Derrick Lamp - Yellow Dog

Is this a derrick lamp? It's in tough shape, no lid and a hole burnt in the bottom. Somebody tried to patch it by pouring lead in the bottom.

Yes sir that sure is a yellow dog . The lead in the bottom is probably babbit for the big oil field engines . A hole or not in the bottom it is still a great piece . Did you just buy it or are you selling it ?

I have run across a few of these with babbitt in the bottom. These ol yeller dawgs got used for more than light. I've got a OWS dog right now thats about 1/4 full of babbitt. BTW, -Where can you get the cast iron lids for the OWS dogs?

Thanks all for the ID.

This was donated to the museum. It must have come to us in a mixed lot as we don't have any documentation.

The bottom bulges downward and there are several cracks radiating out from the hole. I'll give it a minor clean up and put it on display with an ID.

John,

Got the lid for my original OWS yellow dog. It's very good quality and fit great.

Thanks,
Joe

They also poured a lot of lead for impression blocks to see what they were fishing for down hole.

My OWS yellow dog is about 1/4 full of lead or babbit and corrosion so it was used for something besides light. It's darn heavy anyway.
