Faux Grease Lamp
I have made oil lamps, for reenactors to use, for many years and occasionally, on request, I have made them look like grease lamps. This is the first time I have offered one on my website. The traditional grease lamp was made in a variety of shapes, but they all had a reservoir for the grease or fat and a wicking system. They were messy, smokey and dripped unignited grease, but to the common folk they were cheaper than candles.
The lamp I offer may look similar to a grease lamp, but it burns a smokless, ordorless, 100% pure paraffin. This is a single wick lamp, with a handle, about 5" tall.
