Bought this wick lantern couple years ago on one of my visits to Mexico and I was in an old ferretería (hardware store) and saw this and was a MUST HAVE so I decided to grab one and pay.
These “Cachimbas” were made before by local blacksmith, you had to bring a tin milk can with a metal lid (leche Nido were popular back then). I remember my grandmother had two or three of these and a couple of oil lamps (this were a luxurious item back then) so I brought one to California.
second phone is in a restaurant at Delano CA
Since we are in wick Wednesday’s I want to ask where to order a wick for this?
