Hey Jonas,I saw your page on oil rain lamps,I am very impressed on how much you know about them. It says in your bio you really dont collect them as much anymore. May i ask you why you stopped collecting them and how many you ended collecting?. Do you think the value will keep going up on these?. Thanks again Steampunk Steele
