Lamp, Small Copper OilAbout this object
This small copper oil lamp is quite unusual in that it could be carried to light the way to a bedroom. Once there, there is a simple twist mechanism and a small hole in the handle which allows the lamp to be folded flat and safely hung from a nail, acting as a nightlight.Maker
