In the 19th century, English coal miners carried safety lamps invented by Sir Humphrey Davy who had discovered that a flame enclosed by a fine wire mesh, which acts as a flame arrester, will not ignite gases outside the mesh.

These beautiful table lamps closely mimic that design. Beautifully made by hand, as usual they will burn either standard lamp oil or kerosene (both available locally) equally well for hours before requiring a refill. Two sizes are available - 8" and 10" tall, identical except for size.

  • Beautiful Lamp

    Tom K, 5/10/2016 Very attractive lamps. A bit of a disconnect between the fuel information label on the lamp and that described in the technical information sheet included. Also the provided "funnel" (which is not described in the information sheet) is non-functional. I used a bar-b-q injector. As decorative pieces, they're beautiful. As functional lamps, they are a bit challenging, but do work.
  • Love the lamp!

    Austin, 4/11/2016 Great lamp, I have both the small and large and they both perform well.
  • Worth it

    Rick R, 4/24/2015 Looks good & Works Great - as advertised.
  • Very Nice Lamps

    Gary Picha, 12/31/2014 Nice lamps, functional, but mostly nostalgic. Hard to fill, but otherwise a very nice lamp.
  • Miners Lamp

    Robin, 1/19/2014 Burns well, looks great, but looks a little imported.
