Victorian Paraffin lamp with reflector

SKU: RJ00394
£50.00Price

Metal lanterns would have been a necessary part of all homes and establishments during the 18th and 19th centuries. Before the invention of electricity, all buildings would have been lit by either candle lanterns or paraffin lamps.

 

This paraffin lamp has a glass reservoir for the paraffin and a brass carriage for the wick. Attached to the back of the lamp is a metal, reflective plate used to throw the light forward, it also has a hook to hang it on the wall or can be used on a table. This is a typical paraffin lamp from the end of the Victorian period, and would be used in most modest homes and below stairs in a large country or town house.
