This is an Alladin Lamp which was used in the 40's and 50's. It was run on Kerosene and had a silk mantel which gave a bright white light. I found it laying in our junk room and it had not been used for a long time. It had a beautiful look so I thought to give it a face lift and use it by converting it into a modern light. This pollution Creating oil lamp is now turned into an beautiful Environment friendly lamp.
