Vintage Topstar brass blowtorch table lamp Descriptions
In approximately 1797 the blowtorch was invented by the German inventor, August Von Marquardt in Eberswalde. In the 1950’s, after the Korean war, the blowtorch industry was radically changed by the advent of propane and by the 1970’s most of the manufacturers of these old types of kerosene or gasoline burning blow torches had disappeared. This was a sign of the changing times but fortunately, some of these beautifully made old tools haven’t been lost to the scrap metal industry.
