Antique brass table lamp, from the 1910s.
Originally this was a carbide lamp.
Nicely converted into an electrical lamp over time, so that the table lamp can also be used well in this day and age.
Carbide is mainly known for carbide shooting around old and new. However, between 1900 and 1945, this chemical was also used to burn lamps. In this process, water was dripped onto the carbide by means of a water reservoir. This resulted in ethyl gas, which was subsequently incinerated. This gave a nice bright white flame.
You can adjust the lamp a bit in height, you can adjust it over the vertical copper rod.
