Early lighting fuels included beeswax and olive, fish, whale, sesame and nut oils, but in 1859 drilling for petroleum oil began and paraffin lamps grew popular.  Metal funnels were often used for filling paraffin lamps.  This one is made from white aluminium alloy and has a broad rim and a very narrow spout.
