Instructions on how to use this Retro sea ship lantern
- This replica of a historic naval lantern is fully functional. In order to shine with the lamp, you must pour kerosene or lamp oil into it. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open the top lid and pull out the small oil container located at the bottom of the lamp with the wick protruding. This metal canister is soldered to the locking wire. The ends of this wire are terminated with rings. Pull up both rings to remove the canister from the lamp body.
- Open the oil canister cap by unscrewing its screw cap anti-clockwise.
- After unscrewing, pour the lamp oil or kerosene to below the top edge so that the fuel does not overflow. Then screw on the screw cover with the wick again and let the fuel rise for about 2 minutes so that the wick absorbs enough up to the top edge.
- Light the soaked wick and use a wheel on the side of the canister to scrape the flame to keep the flame from smoking and allow it to flare up for about 2 minutes (the flame tends to get bigger). Then trim the wick again so that a smaller flame burns to suit your needs. The flame should ideally be around 20-25mm high.
- Carefully slide the canister with the locking wire back into the lamp and close the lamp top cover.
