This beautiful kerosene lamp from decades past is sure to light up your home! Exceptionally crafted in brass this beautiful piece follows traditional design and features a columnar lamp that stands on a circular base.

A rich patina envelopes the entirety of the piece, adding to its old world aesthetic.
