The grease lamp was the earliest supplementary lighting form which began in the ancient world and was common in Europe and America. The pan was filed with grease , fat scraps, fish oil, vegetable oil or whale oil. A simple wick or rag fed from the fuel. This is a nicely made grease lamp with a quality twist hanger. The redware insert was added at a later date.
