Photo a Day Challenge



We received this antique silver kerosene lamp from Lois’ mom.  We bought some paraffin lamp oil and planned to photograph it while lit, but the wick kept burning down.   It is a central draft lamp that takes a tubular wick which has deteriorated and will have to be replaced.  It hasn’t been lit for at least fifty years.
