The summer has come, and it is time to take a break and go on holidays - so from July 13 to August 23, no orders will be sent out. If you place an order during this time, it will be sent off after the break.

From August 15 to August 19, I will be at the WorldCon in Dublin, with a stall in the dealer's hall. Do drop by if you're attending and say hello!

Have a wonderful summer and glorious holidays!

Oil light (three-bladed swimmer)

Oil llights are a source of light with a lot of history - and very versatile, as any vessel large enough can serve as an oil light. For this, you fill a bowl or glass with a bit of water, top it off with some (vegetable) oil, place the wick-holder on top of it and light it. The amount of oil will determine how long the light will last.

The three-bladed swimmers are made by Glafey in Nuremburg since the nineteenth century. Lighting with the help of an oil lamp, with oil on top of water and a wick in the oil, have been around in the Middle Ages already: Several illuminations show a cone-shaped glass lamp hung with chains.

If you are looking for the simplest version possible, this is your oil light: An oval cardboard box holds one three-bladed swimmer (c 3.5 cm diameter) and 90 plain wicks (without paper holder). Additionally, you get a pair of tweezers so your fingers can stay clean when changing wicks.
