Confused by Weems and Plath lantern

I have a Weems and Plath lantern, looks like this one.

I'm baffled as to it's operation. OK, I understand the principles behind the oil lamp in general, but how do you open this one in particular to light the wick? How do you adjust the wick?

Feeling really dumb right now.
