A traditional, classic English design, both are exquisitely made by hand of Solid Brass and burn either standard lamp oil or kerosene equally well for hours before a refill is needed. (Either will be available locally.) It is, frankly, hard to find these of this high quality at such a reasonable cost.

The larger 8-1/2" high lamp is very, very popular but we have had so many requests for a slightly smaller version that a new size, 7" high, has now been made especially for Garrett Wade. Both are very handsome, and are identical except for overall size. Which one appeals to you will simply be a matter of personal taste and need. These are full reproductions (including the green shipping tube) of the traditional, classic English design.

Solid Brass Wall Mounts are available for these lamps, sized to match the Large (8-1/2") and Medium (7") lamps.

The lamps are also available in Solid Brass & Stainless Steel and in Solid Brass & Copper.

Excellent Product
Reviewed By:   (Montclair, Virginia) 
This beautiful kerosene lantern is sturdy and well made. It indicates that it is patterned after Welsh miners' lamps, yet it is made in India. It will be an added attraction on our gallery table when spring arrives.

I bought, from Garrett Wade, 10 years ago, what I thought were the same lamps. Newly purchased lamps are beautiful, but slightly dysfunctional; the wick cannot be controlled from outside the lamp as the old ones allowed; also, the new ones are smaller and more difficult to fill.

The brass lamps are beautiful and cannot wait to try them. We do experience periodic power failures and thought these would come in very handy. Also, will look great in our Florida room for low night lighting atmosphere. Thanks GW

Small Miner's Oil Lamp
Reviewed By:   (Kirkland, WA) 
Had been wanting one of the lamps for some time to add to a group of other miner's lamps in my mineral collection. Though it looked a little too new at first I soon had a little patina on it and had it lit. Filling and lighting I found quite easy using my own little funnel. My wife liked it so much when lit it will become part of the Christmas centerpiece on the dining table this year (maybe I will have to get the larger one for that..). These are very nice and well made though there was an issue with one of the screws inside a brass leg being stripped and could not be snugged up, my only reason for a 4 rating. All in all, the sale price was right, the quality very good and the look spot on. Sometime I probably will get an original, but until then this is a perfect and functional little jewel. Thanks Garrett Wade!

Description of Lamp Design
Reviewed By:   (Tampa, FL) 
The lamps were designed to prevent coal mine gases from being ignited, by intent they are not readily opened to expose the flame. The extra durability and effort are part of the lamp, mining is hard, dangerous and abusive. The lamp can be easily opened while burning if the hook on the top is grasped and the based turned with your other hand. When first lighting the lamp make sure not to twist the base on too tightly. The wick should just be visible above the metal. With a little familiarity the lamp becomes like anything else and a joy to use. Extra wick will make the lamp burn too bright and hot. Then the oven mit is necessary. On the good side the lamp cannot be blown out by accident or wind. It will last a couple of centuries without change in appearance or functionality. Anything breaks and it can be repaired with minimal mechanical knowledge. If only everything we use were as reliable and functional as this design. The only difference between this lamp and the original Welsh lamps are the double screens inside the top part or hat. The screens prevented flames from burning explosive gases from exiting the lamp and blowing the mine. The flames were watched carefully by the miners to see if the color and intensity changed. Indicating coal gas was present. If you search oil lamps online, you will notice that only a few lamps really caught on and sold in high volume. This lamp was one of them. I love this design and the evolution of what made it. We are looking at the result of industrialization in Victorian England and its need for energy. Coupled with the inventiveness generated by the era to solve a safety issue.

Response By: Garrett Wade
Thank you. Youve described the lamp's operation, simple beauty, practicality, longevity and historical fascination perfectly and succinctly. As you note, these are not the actual mine safety lamps. They are simplified reproductions that are not intended for use as safety lamps.
