Since I found my first Petromax 829 lantern, I am collecting
all kinds of old lights or lanterns. Especially the combination between
technics, design and use atract me. Wellknown names in kerosene pressure
lanterns are : Petromax, Sears, Butterfly, en Tilley. I am also atract
by gaslight. In counterpart of the (pressure) kerosene lamps the gas lights
are mainly made to be fixed to a ceiling or wall inside or outide a house.
On this website I have published, more or less, detailed information about
lamps for the only purpose, SHARING. Most of this information is from other
lamp collectors. I HEREBY ASK YOU NOT TO MISUSE THIS INFORMATION, IT IS
ONLY FOR SELFSTUDY.
By going further You agree with this.
On this place I want to thank Alan Moore, Ara Kebapcioglu, Anton
Kaim and many others for their help by identifying lamps and their support
on our hobby.
