The Astral lamp is derived from the Greek word astron, meaning
star, and is so-named because of its analogy to the brightness of the stars.
For it's day, this kerosene-burning lamp produced a most brilliant light. An
Astral lamp is generally a tall single-standing lamp with a central circular reservoir for
oil, conveyed to an Argand burner.
All of our shades are satin hand-engraved, cut and polished.
