My father was a collector of kerosene lamps.  I am no expert, but I do have some knowledge of kerosene lamps.  In the photograph I recognize four very common antique kerosene lamps made around the turn of the 19th century.  It would be safe to conclude that the majority of the lamps in the photograph are antiques and were manufactured will before the 1950s.  I recommend you go to the library and view books on kerosene antique lamps written by Catherine Thuro.
