I was looking at overpriced kit the other week and came up with the combined cooking, heating and lighting kit based on an American copy of the Petromax Lantern at $500.
I said at the time the original German Petromax Lantern was £84.00 but I couldn't find a cheap copy at this point though loads of different copies were made.
The same company that imports the original is importing this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Looking at the glass it is the Anchor brand lamp.
At 500 candle power these will be bright, a Tilley Lamp or most other standard paraffin lamps are 350cp so this is over 40% brighter.
At £28.00 it is one third the price of the original Petromax Lantern or £2.00 more than a replacement glass for a Tilley Lamp.
Don't know anything about the quality of these they are perhaps not quite the heirlooms of the original but at a third the price?
I just need a nice person to turn up to a camping meet every couple of years with 5 gallons of home heating oil as it's cheaper than the scandalous price of paraffin.
