Holocene No.2 is a walled brass oil lamp with an asymmetrical wick, intended to illuminate small spaces with its warm glow. This product is made of solid brass. Brass will naturally darken over time and fingerprints, grease, water etcetera may leave stains on the surface. If you wish to keep the high polished surface, you will need to polish the brass regularly with a brass polish. Brass should never be placed in a dishwasher.
Use a 2 mm Ø wick for best result. Recommended functional height of the wick is 3 mm. Use only with high quality lamp oil.
