Vintage Dental Tools

If anyone can help me out on this antique item I would truly be appreciative. I believe it is a vintage dental tool sterilizer. I was told it was a device the dentist used to clean and sterilize their instruments. They would light the wick and let the cup get hot in order to sterilize their dental instruments. I am not sure if this is correct or not, so if anyone knows for sure I would like to hear from you. Thanks

Is it not an oil lamp? I've noticed that it is made from medical stainless steel, however I haven't seen a vintage dental tool sterilizer though.
