Charming pair of oil lamps in blue porcelain of Paris with floral design.
A few words about petroleum lamps:
Invented by the Polish pharmacist Ignacy Lukasiewicz in 1853, the petroleum lamp is a luminaire consisting of a tank containing petroleum (petroleum distillate), which rises to the top of the burner thanks to a wick. The whole is topped by a glass chimney. It is thus a lamp with an illuminating flame, which takes up all the progress brought to the oil lamp from 1780, but simplified compared to it, thanks to the fluidity of the petroleum and its aptitude to go up by capillarity in the wick up to about ten centimeters.

More Information

Style: Napoleon III


Nephew of Napoleon I, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was elected President of the Second Republic in 1848 before becoming Emperor Napoleon III in 1852 following a coup d'etat.


Napoleon III style is one of the most interesting even if nothing is really novel with elements borrowed from preceding styles. Based on the taste of the period, Japanese, Chinese and Oriental art brings a richness, abundance and eclecticism specific to this period.
