Product Description

The Wolf Safety Lamp Co. (Wm Maurice) Ltd was a British company that specialized in manufacturing mining safety lamps. The company was founded in 1890 by William Maurice, who had previously worked for the Eccles company, another manufacturer of mining lamps.

The type FE2 miner's safety lamp was one of the lamps produced by the Wolf Safety Lamp Co. It was a flame safety lamp designed for use in underground mining, and it was widely used in coal mines in the UK and around the world. The lamp had a cylindrical brass body, with a glass chimney and a steel gauze around the flame area. The lamp was fueled by paraffin, and it had a burning time of approximately 10 hours.

The FE2 lamp was designed to be highly durable and resistant to the harsh conditions of underground mining. It was also designed to be safe, with a number of features that would prevent the lamp from igniting any explosive gases that might be present in the mine. For example, the lamp had a locking mechanism that prevented the user from opening the lamp while it was still lit, and it had a steel gauze around the flame area that would cool any gases that might come into contact with it.

Today, the type FE2 miner's safety lamp is considered a valuable and collectible item, and it is often sought after by collectors of mining memorabilia. The lamp is also of interest to historians and researchers interested in the history of mining and the development of safety technology in the industry.
