Feuerhand Storm Lanterns

Fed up with poorly made hurricane oil lamps that rust through, leak or break after just a few uses outdoors? Try a Feuerhand Storm Lantern, they are rust proof, have replaceable glass and wicks, and will run for up to 20 hours on paraffin or lamp oil.

If like me you look at a traditional oil lamp like this with a sinking heart, having had so many poorly made ones which rusted through or leaked at the drop of a hat, I have good news.

Feuerhand Storm Lanterns are made in Germany from high grade sheet steel which is painted for effective rust proofing and has a replaceable glass globe is made by the legendary Schott-Suprax. The lantern has all the normal features and will run for up to 20 hours on paraffin or lamp oil. It's running on citronella lamp oil in the pictures, giving a good steady light with no sign of flickering or sooting. I, for one, am very happy to welcome storm lanterns back into my life.
