The “Ananas-Hobnail” collection – optical forms have been used since the beginning of glassmaking in the Czech lands. Glass was decorated in this way directly in glassworks. The original optical moulds were both clay and metal. With the rise of glass production in Bohemia, the production of these optical moulds was gradually improved, the decors became more complex and the production more demanding. One of these optical moulds that has survived to the present day is this so-called ‘pineapple’ decor, which was produced from 1880 in glassworks in the Teplice region, as documented by the historical archives of these glassworks. In the last 10 years, this decor has again become in demand throughout Europe. Thanks to this optic, even on summer days your drinks will stay cool longer. We are trying to expand our range of products using this decor, we also produce various glasses, vases, bowls which were hardly produced in history. In the archives we draw from, we have only found jugs in this decoration.
The kerosene lamp has been a source of light since ancient times. Nowadays it is intended for romantic moments and moments of rest, relaxation. We fill the lamps with kerosene or lamp oil – preferably clear lamp oil. When pouring the reservoir (at least 2/3) or pool, it is necessary to wait about 2-3 hours to allow the wick to soak sufficiently. Light the straight cut wick and once the burner is hot, insert the wick into the burner. This achieves a soft connected light where the oil from the pool burns and the wick does not smell.
The lamp is compatible with a No.2 kerosene burner, 50mm diameter cylinder, 200mm shirmer holder, 200mm shirmer (shade), No.2 flat wick.
