The portable battery-operated hand torch introduced by the Ever Ready company in the 1890’s was made of crude paper and fibre tubes, with a bulb and rough brass reflector. Because the batteries were weak and the bulbs primitive, these hand torches only produced a brief flash of light – hence the name ‘flashlight’. This lamp is made from a 1960-70’s Petrel Chinese knock-off in the style of an Eveready flashlight. It has had its glass and bulb removed, inverted over a recycled and restained wooden lamp base and given an ecru-coloured embroidered lamp shade. The red flashlight switch is a nice touch!
