Seen one that before, it had a stand that it fit in, mounted to the wall. I love things like this, Stopped colecting them when I found out I had way to many. LOL Now I am down to just 4.

Marine, they were very common before electricity.
Older keepsakes are a special of our past life.
I think there are three in our house and this is the smallest one.
I am pleased you like this, Barb.
Thank you all for stopping by and your welcome comments.

For a while we had a bottle of oil for lighting and I think in our
basement flood of 2010 that was removed.
Beekay, After using this and a lantern for doing chores we are leaved
to have electricity.
Jacki, we have a flashlight and candles to be used if needed.
Suzy, solar lights is a great idea for emergency use.

Floyd, we must be on the same wavelength - I posted one similar to this today too, for the Theme.
Greetings to you and Arlene.

We now use solar lanterns if needed as well as numerous battery operated lanterns for camping. A far cry from the days of kerosene lamps.
Nice theme puzzle, Floyd.

Beekay

Oops...that should be in case. Not sure where my heads at.
And ours use kerosene too.

We used something very similar but using kerocene for fuel. And, as Beekay mentioned, still have one or two hanging around for when storms knock the power out. Haven't used one since we added a generator which goes on automatically when the power goes out. According to code, our gas heater must have an electric starter rather than a pilot light, so when electricity goes out, so does our heat.

Beekay

Many New Englanders still have a few of these encase the electricity goes out in the winter. Myself included but fortunately haven't used one in many years. We now have a generator for those rare occasions a storm knocks out the power for an extended length of time.
