We stock a quality selection of Welsh miners’ lamps in our online shop.
Brass and Copper Welsh miners’ lamps
Our selection of lamps are made with different metals including copper and brass. The lamps come in cylindrical gift boxes. Included in the box are instructions on how to use the lamp (paraffin will be needed to be purchased separately), and a brief segment outlining the history of mining lamps in Wales.
In fact Dr Ben Curtis argues that the Welsh mining lamp is the most important object in Welsh history. Being steeped in so much cultural importance, they provide a meaningful purchase for the household. They were such an important tool for the miners that worked in such difficult conditions.
Mining lamp sizes
We offer two main options in terms of size – large or medium. Our medium lamps are approximately 19.5cm and our large lamps are 23cm tall.
