Wales has a rich history of coal mining and miners lamps are a key symbol from the industries history. Before the times of electricity, battery powered torches, and light bulbs, there were candles and lamps. However during the mining process there was a high risk that flammable gases and dust in the air could be ignited by these naked flames and cause explosions underground. Since 1740 engineers, scientists, and even doctors invented and developed the safety lamps for miners to try to protect the flame from the gases and provide a safe light for the miners to work with.

The miners lamps for sale here at Welsh Gifts can be found in brass, stainless steel or even two tone finishes such as copper and brass or stainless steel and brass, so you match it to your interior decoration. These lamps would look great as decoration on a mantle piece, on shelves or even hung up as they all have hooks which miners would have used to hang the lamps from the beams. To keep with the traditional look we have the all brass miners lamp and for a more contemporary look we have the cream or duck egg / green enamel.
