A new lease on life for a common workshop tool from yesteryear.

You can almost smell the kerosene as you sit and admire this old treasure.

Vintage Liberty Brass Blowtorch Table LampDescription

In approximately 1797 the blowtorch was invented by the German inventor, August Von Marquardt in Eberswalde. In the 1950s, after the Korean war, the blow torch industry was radically changed by the advent of propane and by the 1970’s most of the manufacturers of these old types of kerosene or gasoline burning blow torches had disappeared. This was a sign of the changing times but fortunately, some of these beautifully made old tools haven’t been lost to the scrap metal industry.
