Cargo LampI have collected kerosene lamps for a number of years and ordered this one because of its catalogue appearance. Most of your customers will want it for its striking appearance, which is exceptional. I have not had any excess difficulty with removing and extinguishing the burner assembly but all should be aware that it is removed through the bottom of the lamp. I used a common potholder to facilitate that maneuver. As noted elsewhere, the main body of the lamp does get hot to the point that it cannot be grasped with the bare hand. Also, readers should note that there is no integrated glass chimney although the burner component has flanges to grasp such a chimney. You may be aware that whale oil lamps do not require a chimney while kerosene lamps usually burn cleaner and brighter with one.

QuestionI received this beautiful lantern as a gift and do love it. Am I missing something or uneducated about gaining access to adjust the wick or extinguish the flame? It's not safe or practical to have to remove the reservoir from the base, especially when it has been in use a while...the handle being very hot. One needs two people. Please advise.

Cargo Oil LampThis was ordered as a Christmas present for my Wife but was so popular that it was back ordered. She got an enlarged picture in a card under the tree. She says that it is beautiful and can't wait for it to arrive.She was also pleased with the Brass/Copper oil lamp I also order(do you really think I could have gotten away with a card and picture?) She is now trying to decide where she wants to hang it,instead of me.:)
