Kerosene lamps in the antique world run the gamut of personalities as much as their owners. Some are simple and utilitarian, made for the single purpose of holding fuel and shedding light in the darkness. Some lamps were adorned with bosses, scrolls, flowers, made of metal or porcelain or stained glass and were decorative centerpieces for an entertaining evening.
Evenings spent around the oil lamp were a massive part of American life and heritage before electricity was made widely available and well before television. These enchanting lights are still in the hearts of antique collectors, enthusiasts and admirers all over the globe. But the use of Kerosene does have a few drawbacks. Kerosene is a liquid that burns and gives off fumes. It can be a major contributor to indoor air pollution. There's also the fact that as charming and warm as a flame can be, it is still a flame burning in the lamp. Accidents with a flame can turn into something beyond a small incident in the matter of seconds.
