The Feuerhand kerosene lantern is an outdoor classic. It has been built since the 1930s. The production of Feuerhand dates back to 1893 (more on this at: https://www.feuerhand.de/geschichte/).
With the Baby Special 276, the air required for combustion is supplied from outside and preheated so that more oxygen is available for combustion. Due to the increased oxygen content, the lamp shines brighter. A hurricane lantern like the Baby Special creates a warm light and can be put to good use in the garden at home or when camping.
The vintage design creates an atmosphere of bygone days and invites you to tell stories around the campfire. The lamp is a light source that has been tried and tested over decades. The operation of the lamp is very simple. Petroleum is poured into the filling opening. The tank holds 340 ml of petroleum and the tank opening is secured with a screw cap.
The wick sits between two serrated rods that can be rotated. This rotating device allows you to adjust the wick length and thus how bright the lamp shines. If you now want to use the lamp, the glass lifting lever is pressed down. This will cause the glass to move up and make the burner assembly accessible. The wick is then twisted out a few millimeters and lit. It is important that the wick has soaked up the fuel.
After the wick burns, the glass lifting lever is pushed down again and the lamp is in operation. The light intensity can then be adjusted as desired using the rotary device. If the glass breaks or if you lose the tank cap, it can be obtained as a spare part. Feuerhand Baby Special in operation Lantern just after lighting the wick
