We ordered one of the polished brass table lamps and received it this week. We could NOT be happier. The workmanship is superior to anything we've seen in this price range. And the Kosmos burner design features an amazing circle of fire from the way it feeds the wick through, giving up to 14 candle power. We love the bright light, and have ordered several more with the same #14 size burner so we can stock the large flat wicks and chimneys for any of them. We are using Klean Heat fuel we also purchased from Lehman's. Per the packing material, the lamp is manufactured by Gaudard a centuries old family business in the Jura region of France. Per Lehman's the model they carry also has a lacquer protective coating on the brass. It must because it shines so beautifully. We will need to find a cleaner that does not destroy that lacquer finish; something very mild. After seeing this lamp, we have ordered additional styles in the same burner size for standardizing our supplies of wicks and a backup chimney or two. Enjoy!

I bought my first of these lamps several years ago. I was excellent both visually and functionally. The workmanship is flawless... a solid heavy brass lamp. It has become my go-to gift for weddings... and the several recipients have been very happy, grateful. I got a phone call after a bad storm, ... we just had it on the shelf because it looked great... why didn't you tell us it was such great light! I am ordering two more, one for a gift and one to replace the one I gave away. 100% Perfect!

I found the lamp to be well made. It is easy to use and gives off enough light to read by when placed on the table. When placed on the mantle it provides soft light across a twenty foot long room. Very pleased with the lamp and find it to be well worth the price, especially when out of power for a week.
