Description
Cylindrical shaped lamp that has a handle with a hook on it. On top of the lamp there is a spout with a round concave upright disk that measures 7.5cm in diameter. On the opposite side of the spout is a small disk that opens and closes, but is fastened from the inside. Although a small handle is situated behind this disk, part of it extends just above the disk. The handle turns either left or right. The larger handle with the hook extends from the top down to the bottom of the lamp. It is also more angled to one side than the other. The handle and the lamp appear to be in two parts but the handle is hinged together by screws which are holding the lamp together.
Narrative
Carbide lamps were a great advance over oil lamps and candles. This type of lamp, in common use by 1905, provided a bright light. It was also much safer and healthier for the miners as it did not produce any carbon monoxide and very little carbon dioxide.
