My object: paraffin lamp
My story about it:
This paraffin lamp is way more than a hundred years old. My grandmother already inherited it from her grandmother. I remember my childhood times very well: when it got dark we only had the paraffin lamp, when eating, when working, when telling stories, for anything really. It was in operation until 1967 when our village got electricity.
I took it with me to Berlin. Fortunately, the lamp did not suffer from the war and the lootings at my house.
