This lamp was produced in Germany around 1900. It was a follow-up on the Mueseler Lamp. In this new lamp an igniter was added, which meant the lamp could also be lightened up safely in the mine. With the Mueseler Lamp that was not possible because of explosion danger. Another difference with the Mueseler Lamp, was that the oil was replaced by petrol. Petrol is easier flammable and exports a brighter light than oil. This petrol lamp had a chatter igniter. To light it, a stroke of paper with sulfur was stroked to a gear. In this way, a spark of fire was created to light up the lamp.
A big advantage of this lamp was the presence of a safety mechanic: when there was mine gas present in the mine, this would start burning in the lamp. Above the flame of the lamp, a blue cone would arise. From the length of this cone one could tell the mine gas percentage. The burning mine gas in the lamp could not get through the mesh, because the heath of the flame was absorbed by the copper.
