There was some old kerosene and gunky residue on the bottom of the bowl. I cleaned the bowl with some basic soap and water and a bottle brush. It cleaned up very nice but there is still some kerosene odor in the wick.
I have another lamp just like it for sale also. They are almost a matching pair (last pic). The one for sale in this listing is the lighter one on the left. The lamp on the right is a little darker in color and the year on the bottom is 1979.Vintage items and items not marked'new' may exhibit some sort of wear.
