Outdoor Lighting & Hurricane Lamps
Depending on where you grew up they are known as storm lanterns, hurricane lanterns, Tilley Lamps, Petromax Lamps, railway lamps, or paraffin lamps. All we know is they are the best way to light up a BBQ shack, or garden party.
These are not decorative lamps - they are proper primary sources of light that in some parts of the world are still the main source of light for many people. Treat them with respect and they will last you many lifetimes and through many parties, camping trips, and power cuts.
A Feuerhand Baby Special runs on paraffin or kerosene and gives approximately 4 times more light than a candle. It lasts 20 hours on 300ml of fuel and costs about 10c per hour to run. It should only be used outdoors. Every lamp is made in Germany,
A Petromax HK500 runs on Paraffin or Kerosene and gives around the same light as an old 60w bulb (dimmable). It lasts 8 hours on 1000ml of fuel and costs about 90c per hour to run. It should only be used outdoors. Every lamp is made in Germany. The HK500 is a beautiful machine and is so efficient and brilliant that it was blamed for slowing the roll-out of electricity across Europe - people did not see the need for electric light when they had a Petromax.
We can source spare parts for both lamps including new glass. We can source almost every nut and bolt for the HK500 as well as full rebuild/restoration kits. Just drop us a line.
