The Tavern Lamp is a reproduction of a piece made in New York City in the 1840′s by the pewter lamp making firm of Capen & Molineux. They made many different styles of oil and camphene lamps. Some surviving examples are even equipped with lard oil burners.

Our lamp has the single, taller, camphene burner and a wonderful scroll handle. This was a portable lamp that would have been used in many ways, including lighting the way to one’s bed chamber after dark. The single burner produces a soft, mellow light. All lamps come with instruction and a free bottle of lamp oil.
