If you're wondering how this style came to be, at the turn of the 20th century light was still a somewhat rare commodity. The light bulb was still a work in progress, and there was barely an electric grid to power the new invention. So a product that would provide users with economical, reliable, and safe illumination was born--the gas light. Earlier varieties comprised tall glass chimneys, as well as nickel and glass plated bases. The original models went unmarked, but in 1913 a model number was stamped on the wick-raising knob. It wasn't until 1919 that the product line began to diversify, with thermoses and other types of domestic items that would finally lead to the style's dominance in the 1950s.
