Our Grease Lamp.

When we lived without electricity we used a combination of rushlights, candles (home made), and grease lamps. One grease lamp I made from a tin, but it was not as pleasing to look at as the one below. They are smoky though, and the ceiling colours in the living room and kitchen in Elm Cottage are much darker because of using this lighting.

Simple enough; shame about the base.

Hi Gorges. Yes it was like that when given to us, but I still love this piece.
