Wholesale History of Lanterns
From the earliest days people tried to create light and remove darkness. It took a lot of effort.
Evidence of the first lamps used by the first people goes back to 70,000BC. They had a simple structure – consisting of pieces of moss that contained only moss fragments soaked in animal fats with a shell or flame. Since then people have used other materials for the body of the lamp – terracotta, marble and metal and oil (fish and olive oil). It was often added to suppositories to extend and focus the flame’s burning. Kandil, until the end of the 18th century was the most common lighting method.
As time passed and new energy sources were discovered, new types of lamps were invented. In the 19th century, kerosene lamps were introduced in Germany. It was a kerosene-containing vessel in which the burned wick or mantle was submerged. The closed metal canister had a glass chimney or sphere protecting the flame from the draft.
In the last decade of the 18th century, the first commercial coal gas was used to illuminate the house and places. Coal gas was transported by pipes instead of consumption and directed to lamps. In the early 19th century, most of the cities in Europe and the United States enlightened the streets.
Wholesale Mosaic History of Lamps
The long war artificial light against the night brought great inventions. Some of them are simple and simple, some are complex and lucky, they give us the lamps we have today, so we don’t have to see darkness as our enemy anymore. Learn more about the history of lamps.
History of Lanterns
When a portable light source is needed – lanterns are a good solution. Some of them have aesthetic qualities, others are spiritual. Learn more about the history of the flashlights.
Then one of the greatest inventions in human history – electric and electric lamp. In 1801, Sir Humphrey Davy invented the first electric carbon arc lamp by connecting the two cables to the battery and connecting a coal strip to the other end of the wires that allowed the carbon to shine. Again primitive, he needed to perfect and in the 1870s, both Thomas Edison and Sir Joseph Swann independently operated electric
He invented an incandescent lamp (Edison, developing a 50-year patent). It worked when electric current passed through a heated and light-producing filament. These lamps lasted briefly according to modern standards and were inefficient and fragile, but it was a good base for a giant leap forward and those coming after.
Some of the other lamp types that are the stepping stone in the development of electric lamps are fluorescent triphosphorus lamps, metal halide, high pressure sodium lamp and dichroic extra low voltage lamp.
Developments in the technology of the electric lamps are continuing and today we produce authentic lamps produced from mosaic glass symmetrical cut glass pieces. We produce many kinds of lamps for various materials, power supplies, color of lights and different uses. Neon and fluorescent lamps are very popular in both industrial and home use. Mercury lamps are used for stadiums, factories and street lamps due to their colors, activities and lives.
