A/ABC Wednesday

A is for Antique

 A pair of antique glass wick lamp using kerosene at Grandpa's Inn in Vigan.  We used this kind of lamp at my grandmother's house when I was a kid---there was no electricity then.

Love your antique lamps. We get so used to electricity that its hard to believe people had to read by that type of lamp light.

Visiting from ABC Wednesday and RT

Gigi Ann said...

Oh, Yes.. I remember them well. Lovely photo.

Karen said...

These are lovely. I have a couple that were my grandmother's and they come in handy when the power goes out.

Jama said...

I remembered my late grandma used to have these in her home, but seldom used as she had electricity. Perhaps these were on standby during power failure days..

Hazel said...

Anything that's old, well, almost anything, and as charming as these, count me in!

Kate said...

A beauiful photo to remind us of some of the beauties of the past. I still have one, but never use it.

Nice shot of the oil lamps. They cast a lovely light when lit but these may be purely decorative.

Oh, I should have thought about 'antiques'. I have a pair of candle sticks I could have easily used. These are nice.
