Exhibit description

The most vital element of this gas lamp is, at the same time, most fragile.

The thin Welsbach mantle heats up and radiates light. It is protected with a lampshade with a special design. The brightness of the flame was adjusted with a convenient valve.

This particular lamp produced by Polmet was not only elegant but also practical. As a result, this gas lamp often decorated fashionable interiors in the city of Lviv.
