Pictures of your oil lamps please.

I am interested in the wide variety of oil lamps that are in use out there and which ones you find are particularly functional. If it burns with a flame, I am interested in your pictures and opinions.

Things of particular interst are:

Burn rate of fuel and what kind of fuel used
Wick type
Light production
Soot production
Availability of spare parts/cost of operation
Oil burning Nav/Running lights
Cabin Lamps
Anchor Lamps

You can't take too many pictures! The more detailed the photo, the better!
Thanks so much for your help in this project.
