Oil Lamp wicksSince I bought several of the 8 1/2" and 7" Brass oil lamps I felt it was best to order extra wicks at the same time. When I unpacked the items I actually tried several new wicks in the oil lamps and they fit perfectly. Now I don't have to worry about running out anytime soon.
Brass Lamp reviewOriginally I wasn't intending to buy the lamps but then I thought Christmas isn't that far away. So I bought two of the 8 1/2" and two 7" brass lamps for gifts. After receiving the lamps and unpacking them, some folks just lost out on great Christmas gifts since I am keeping them for myself. I may loan them out but that is as far as it goes. They are are well made and I like the way they are made. I bought extra wicks and plan on using the lamps in the next 30 days or so. Having grown up using oil and kerosene lamps and lanterns on a farm, I know the importance of placing the lamps on a secondary surface so they don't cause problems with furniture, Also these will be great light backups if the power goes out. This review also applies to the 7" Brass Oil Lamps I bought
Nice LampMany years ago I purchased a similar 10" miner's lamp made in Wales, UK, from Garrett Wade. I have always been impressed by its quality and recently decided to purchase another. However, Garrett Wade no longer carries that lamp. I bought two of the 8 1/2" brass & copper lamps instead for a little less than the cost of the 10" lamp. My guess is that the 8 1/2" lamps, which are made in India, are patterned after the 10" lamp. Although the fit and finish of the 8 1/2" lamps is not the same quality as the 10" lamp and they don't have the same functionality (e.g. there is no external wick adjustment) they are nice lamps for the money. My only complaint is that the glass in one of the lamps was broken when I received it. I promply returned it for an exchange which was to be shipped to me within 2-3 business days. However, that was over two weeks ago and I haven't heard back from Garrett Wade. I believe the lamp deserves a solid four stars but knocked the rating down to reflect the service.

Oil lampReceived my new lamp and was amazed by the quality and craftsman ship as soon as I removed it from the box. Absolutely love it.
Overall not bad, but have to place something under it where I want it placedCONS - base gets to hot for a painted surface or polished wood if used over 5 hours -
PROS - looks good and burns a long time
