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.
