Nice antique brass burner for kerosene or oil lamp. There are patent dates on the thumbwheel (1860, I believe is the most recent) and this is the Collins style of burner for a bullet chimney. Top of burner is 3 diameter. Please look closely at the pictures; they are part of the description. We are describing what we see but you are the expert.
