Description
The double crusie lamp is primarily a domestic lamp with origins in Scotland and Ireland. The double bowl variety was sometimes called a phoebe lamp; the upper bowl contained oil with a floating wick and the bottom bowl caught the fuel drippings. A toothed arm to slant the upper bowl was used to keep the fuel at the wick; although used for domestic purposes, the double crusie lamp undoubtedly found use in the mines.
