When theDen Haan Rotterdam company was founded in 1922,
it manufactured products solely for the shipping industry. Into the 1960’sthe demand for marine oil lamps grew,
and the range of models increased to meet the demand. Almost all of the oil lamps in the DHR line have a nautical history and have been used on ships all over the world for both navigation and general lighting purposes.DHR has
kept tinsmithing craftsmanship alive in Holland for nearly 100 yearsby investing in modernization, but it is a combination of the
knowledge of our craftsmen and our machinery that
makes DHR lamps the highest in quality. In modern times, DHR oil lamps are still used as
reliable emergency lights when all power is down, but mainly they are used for thematic and decorative purposes, as they produce a nice warm light and create a relaxing atmosphere.
