1 review for W.T. Kirkman No. 94 Candle Lamp

  1. Paul Neubauer (verified owner)

    As made & shipped this is exactly what is pictured and works as one would expect. I do find it a bit odd that the original design (and I know, I am over a century away and used to different things, like steady electric light) did not include a means for air intake other than the top of the chimney. Thus, as made, the flame flickers or pulses. I’ve drilled four tiny holes (no. 60 or very close) in the base, just inside where the chimney rests, in a square or diamond pattern. The result is that there is now little if any pulsing or flickering unless the lamp is in a draft. The holes for the spring-loading in the base are sufficient to let air in if the lantern is set on a flat surface. If hung by the bail, this is of course no issue. I do NOT consider this a fault of W.T. Kirkman – they made it as designed, and perhaps the flickering was no issue in the 19th century. Some might even like it.

    I do have one issue, and it’s not with the design. Where do I get properly sized replacement candles? I don’t see them here, but neither do I see a recommended source. Yes, it’s a nit at most.

      Mr. Neubauer,

      The #94 lamp was directly copied from a lamp patented in 1894. The lamp can be found by searching “Fred Fear Lamp.” The original design did not offer holes in the bottom either, and some examples that turn up show people have made the same modification you have, they instead did it with a nail and hammer.

      As opposed to Cold Blast or Hot Blast, this lamp is referred to as “Dead Flame” which is fairly self explanatory. It’s not the best design, but it’s cheap just the same way this style of lamp was cheap many years ago.

      One possible suggestion, Holes may also be drilled around the lettering as well, then the air flow would flow through two baffles when the lamp is set on a table. I may experiment with offering this modification.

      I have been meaning to offer these candles on their own. I will add that product shortly and shoot you an email when added.

      Thank You Very Much for your Honest Review. I Highly Appreciate it.

      Best Regards,
      Madison Kirkman
