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.

  • Outstanding

    Katherine Webb, 9/13/2015 Thanks for making this available again, my dad had one, but when he passed it came up missing. I haven't had an opportunity to use it yet, but I rest assured that it will be ready when needed.
  • Nice Decoration But Doesn't Work

    Rick R, 4/24/2015 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

    George, 12/10/2014 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

    Reginald Davis, 12/9/2014 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

    Mark, 12/7/2013 They do exactly what they say they do, replace wicks.
  • Have you seen the light?

    Mark, 12/7/2013 Good looking, very nice. Do not overfill! It will leak. Easy to operate, quality piece.
  • Thought they would be better made

    James D Joy, 12/1/2013 I think they are very lightly made, and not having near the strength overall as their steel counterparts. That disappointed me. Garret Wade handles so many excellent quality items, that opening up this shipment was a let down. Just made to look at not use.
  • Hurricane Lamp/Wicks

    Mary Madore, 10/28/2013 I placed my first order by phone. The salesperson was polite and very helpful. My second order by internet. Items arrived on time in good condition and I am very satisfied with the quality of your products and so are my friends. I'll be ordering again tonight.
  • Lantern

    FOliveria, 10/22/2013 Absolutely beautiful. Makes a nice light. I use it as a decoration on a desk made my father-in-law in the early 1950's. It compliments the other period items on the desk. When the power is off (often), it will be a source of light. I am very pleased with the purchase.
  • Garrett Wade Does It Again

    Q Smythe, 8/20/2013 Garrett Wade is making a splash with some wonderful retro brass lamps - this is the second lamp that I've bought for both decorative and night-time on-the-deck use in the mountains of Utah. Keep the great products coming, G-W
  • Leaking Lamp

    Michael Muir, 7/11/2013 Lamp leaks when I filled it. I'm returning. It looks great. My satisfaction with Garrett Wade products over the years has been real good. I think this is the first item I've had a problem with any item.
  • Good Back-Up

    Brad, 2/26/2013 If you're looking for a newly made solid brass lantern, you can't beat this price. Just realize you get what you pay for. I believe it would be an acceptable back-up when storage in a moist environment can't be avoided: boathouse, barn, remote cabin, etc. I need an everyday-use lantern, so I am returning this due to fit of parts. All the parts work but the action of the globe raising lever and the wick feed knob feel jerky/uneven. It's no Dietz. Again, I believe, if used with care, occasionally, this would serve it's purpose well, especially for the price.
  • Kerosene OK

    Joe, 1/1/2013 I bought the lamps for Christmas presents for friends who all live in the country where power is less than reliable. The lamps came marked for paraffin only" even though they were advertised as suitable for kerosene or lamp oil. I wrote a response to GW and receive a prompt reply that kerosene was in fact OK which has been validated by use. The climate down here is humid and salty. Standard lamps rust and I expect these to much more durable. They could have been packed to protect the upper chimney closure but small cosmetic dents were easily repaired. I have many lamps and am pleased with these. "
