We are the largest UK stockist of wicks for Aladdin, Valor, Rippingilles, Eltex, Parasene, Beatrice, POD, Corona, Toyokuni, Kerosun, Zibro Kamin, Toyoset, Ruby and other domestic heaters plus replacement glass chimneys, wicks and burners for traditional oil lamps such as Veritas, Hinks, Messenger, Sherwoods, Defries, Famos, Thermidor & Lampe Belge.
We carry the largest UK range of replacement burners, shade holders and accessories for paraffin lamps. Some are 'antique finish' to blend in with patinated lamps, the range includes Kosmos, Odin, Ideal and Pigeon types.

When available we stock new Paraffin, (Kerosene), wick lamps from Aladdin, DHR, Gaudard, Tilley, Vapalux and Petromax pressure lamps, stoves from Manaslu, Primus and Trangia.
We are also the main UK stockist for all sizes of 'hard' gas mantles under the Veritas or Auerlicht brands.

We use paraffin stoves and lamps ourselves and if we wouldn't use it you will not find it our anywhere on our site! It's our guarantee of quality.

Our Obsolete Parts Register keeps details of enthusiasts and collectors requests which we match up with obsolete parts during our International searches for caches of lantern and stove spares. If you have or know of similar stores of parts near you let us know, we have enthusiasts waiting!
