Emergency lighting the old kerosene lamp. I found this one for $5.00 at Kmart.

This one we had but the chimney was gone so I bought a new one Antique Lamp Supply on the net.

Lots of holes to help make a better burn of the kerosene.

This is the fuel you can find at most chain stores.

Replace the chimney and adjust flame with the knob on the side.

These lamps use a wick like the white gas lamps of today.

Note these lamps burn kerosene so be prepared to live with the odor. Hopefully the power outage is in warm weather so you can open a window or two

Great looking lamps, Swede. We have a couple as well. They make nice decorations and are very useful when the power goes out.

I have 4 of them packed away.  LOVE them. I had a citrus scented oil I loved years ago but have not seen it since.
