Mammoth oil lamps were produced mainly for
use in stores and other commercial venues. "Mammoth" is the product name of the line created by Bradley and Hubbard Manufacturing Co.
(B&H) of Meriden, CT and is
so named because of its mammoth size compared to other oil lamps of the late
19th century. Similar lamps were the B&H "Radiant
#5", "The Pittsburgh" by Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass and
Glass Company, E.M. Miller's "Dresden" and the The Plume & Atwood Manufacturing Company's "Plumwood".
Some of these styles had opal glass platters instead of tin, and still others
had round opal domes. These are all generically called mammoth lamps, as it is the term coined
for lamps of this style and size.
