The heavy oil that formed the lamp's fuel, which could be any form of oil ranging from whale-oil to rapeseed oil (in times before the discovery of paraffin or kerosene), was kept in the slightly tapered copper cistern on a tripod stand with adjustable legs, and kept at a constant pressure by means of a weight floating on the top of the oil.
