This art nouveau masterwork advertises the gas mantle lamp perfected by Carl Auer von Welsbach in 1892. By heating a textile sack impregnated with rare earth metals, they produced an intensely white light while using significantly less fuel than earlier gaslights. In 1895 they were spreading across Europe, and were so successful they even gave Edison’s electrics a run for their money. Gas mantles are still used today in many camping lanterns, pressure lanterns and oil lamps.
