Originally these lamps were oil lamps (the upper part was the container of the liquid), over time the mechanism with the wick has been modified in order to electrify them, so they have recently been supplied with handmade lampshades to make them more comfortable and modern use, the lampshades have been carefully chosen in shape and colors to match them in a sober and refined way with the lamps themselves; the body and the oil container, completely smooth, are in black opaline glass; the base, well decorated and solid, is a brass casting, again in brass are the finishes that enrich the lamps; very particular and original is the old mechanism that raised the wick. The opaline is slightly translucent glass, opacified with phosphates and chlorides of sodium and calcium with the addition of tin and talcum oxides, thus obtained various shades of colors from pastel to milk-white; opaline glass is much less dense and opaque than milky glass (very similar to porcelain); the opaline in the strict sense is a French product that was born at the end of the 18th century - beginning of the 19th century in imitation of the Murano and German semi-opaque glasses of the seventeenth century and which has its moment of maximum splendor from 1820 to 1870 thanks to the achievements of the French factories ( Baccarat, Saint Louis and Choisy-le-Roy); from 800 onwards, the opaline spread all over the world with the handicraft production of everyday objects. France, from ancient times to modern times, is recognized as a producer of the best quality opaline glass. Handcrafted in France between 1880 and 1890.
