This would be my guess as well, an old smudge pot just missing the wick assembly. :shrug: These would use just about any oil that would burn, from kerosene and other petroleum oils to whale and olive...

I was speaking in reference to the hole on the other side of the finger behind the tang fittings. "IF" this hole was made by an insect larva the side where it broke through would be larger. :shrug:

The final fitting the tang extends through before being peened looks a bit yellow in your photos as well, so you might want to have it checked at the same time as the pins. :D
