    Lamp said to system Carcel to rise on vase China to Canton period XIXème. Bronze mounting. This Carcel mechanism is named after its inventor Guillaume Carcel who developed in 1800 his oil lamp (rapeseed oil, for example) with a suction and pressure pump driven by a clockwork motor, which ensures the constant supply of the wick. The tank is no longer lateral: it is now under the burner. This lamp, on foot, has a burner with a cylindrical wick and a mobile glass holder to regulate the flame. The chimney-glass is throttled at the level of the flame. The Carcel lamp, reputedly expensive and fragile, was reserved for a wealthy clientele.
    His widow and his son-in-law M. Zier, still held in 1821, the workshops and the store of the 8 street of the Arbre-Sec in Paris. This very expensive lamp is very fragile was considered another time as a model of great luxury. Dimension 68 cm of height and 20 cm of diameter decoration with trees and flowers. One finds this system generally on lamps out of sheet metal of time restoration or empire much more rarely on porcelain vases.
