This recently found 1914  advertised Akron
Kero-Gas Model Table Lamp, Model is described and illustrated but not listed in known Akron catalogs or documents to date. The 111 Market S. Canton Ohio address is thought to possibly have been an export office location at this time. 

The 90 degree fuel feed, for valve casting and support rod or tube is unlike known Akron or known other maker at this time.

Anyone with information or comments about this subject are encouraged to post to keep this thread exposed to other collectors. 

Thanks for your interest and comments !

I have done a fair bit of searching for this one and Larry and I have discussed it but I don't know this lamp at all or what the burner on it might be. That cranked fuel feed fitting and horizontal valve casting was never used by many makers. AGM did with their model P71 but with a single support generator fitting only. The Canton address is odd too. The Akron Gas Lamp Co. is not listed in the Canton directory and the occupant at 111 Market South is Will Green a men’s furnishings and outfitters. The mention of paraffin and an ad for a kero lamp suggests an address for export sales and that is supported by the company at that address being listed in an exporters magazine. The name Kero-Gas or Kerogas was used as a brand at various times by Lindeman & Hoverson, Thomas, Incandescent Light & Stove and AGM but I was not aware that Akron had also used it for a kerosene lamp more or less at the same time as IL&S and Thomas. We certainly want to know more and any other info or an example of the lamp would be most welcome. ::Neil::

Highly likely a limited export model.
Where was the advertisement found or possibly intended? The word 'Petroleum' would have a different meaning in certain parts of Europe, Germany for example, and that would simply mean kerosene.
Similarly, paraffin is the common name for kerosene in Britain or any former British-colonized countries, instead of just wax or any 'alkanes'.
I don't think anyone in USA, past or present, would use the term Petroleum for kerosene.

Hi Mark, This was found in a 1914 New York USA based export publication, from Canton Ohio USA,
23 miles from Akron Gas Lamp Co. Akron Ohio. 

The large size no doubt expensive advertising ran November and December, the cost of an issue was .25 cents today = $25.90  

So yes this lamp was definitely targeted to the international market.

the spelling of Kerosene in the ad is curious. So is the mention of Paraffin.

According to Wikipedia, kerosene is sometimes spelled as 'kerosine' in scientitic and industrial usage.

In merry old England, Kero is still known as Paraffin oil.
