As you may gather, we are enthusiasts for hurricane lamps. We love the soft, calming light they produce and the fact that they will reliably burn for hours and are completely portable. Twenty years ago, we were shown one made of Solid Polished Brass, but the company had ceased production and could not be persuaded to start again. Now we have found one again.

As is true of the others we have of plated or painted steel, this style of non-electric light which uses lamp oil or kerosene equally well, is an excellent home emergency source of illumination as well as providing reliable light when “off the grid” (in a remote vacation home, camping or another adventure). Inexpensive to operate, safe, and long lasting without fuss or bother, it is virtually impossible to blow them out unintentionally. Testing shows that this will stay well lit without refilling for over 24 hours with a medium flame. It’s a beauty. Buy 3 or more and save 10%.

Nice Decoration But Doesn't Work
Reviewed By:   (Daleville, AL) 
Well, these looked great in the catalog so I bought one several months ago. Was a bit disappointed when it arrived as it seemed more flimsy than it appeared (especially since it was described in the catalog as "solid brass") but thought it would work. Well the power went out tonight and I pulled out the lamp for the first time and attempted to fill it with oil. The cap not only cross-threaded (as another reviewer observed) but the stem of the cap is not even welded properly to the tank so the darn thing leaks oil everywhere when you move it (making it a definite fire-hazard). If you want something that is decorative only then buy it; however if you want something that is sturdier and actually works as advertised buy the Miner's Lamp.

Costly -- But Worth It
Reviewed By:   (Potsdam, New York) 
At first glance this lamp seems expensive -- until it arrives and one compares it with other makes and models. Not too much to it -- and I can't wait til Spring/summer/fall -- when the three I purchased will truly add to my (off grid) camp.

High Price Junk
Reviewed By:   (Earlysville, Virginia) 
Poorly made globe lever stiff and does not work smooth. Filler cap threads crude and easy to cross. Looks a lot heavier made in the catalog. It feels light weight and if it's brass it must be over aluminum. Too Expensive also.

They are wicks afterall
Reviewed By:   (West Allis, WI) 
They do exactly what they say they do, replace wicks.

Have you seen the light?

Good looking, very nice. Do not overfill! It will leak. Easy to operate, quality piece.
