The miner's helmet has a candle attached which makes it a light source.

Long Description

When unlit:

This is a miner's helmet with a shielded candle cleverly attached to it.  The candle is not lit.

When lit:

This is a miner's helmet with a shielded candle cleverly attached to it.  The candle is burning with a steady yellow light.

When burnt out:

This is a miner's helmet with a shielded candle cleverly attached to it.  The candle is not lit, which is not surprising, since there is nothing left but a charred piece of the wick.

Appraises as

The miner's helmet (lit) is about nine inches long and about nine inches wide. It is made of iron and could be worn as armour.

Usage

A miner's helmet can be worn. It will also stay lit if dropped, unlike candles and torches.

When lit, it produces quite a bit of light. It will burn for an hour before the candle it comes with burns out.

You can "replace candle" to put a new candle in the helmet, causing it to reset and once more have an hour's worth of light left (you need to have a candle in your inventory to do this). Note that the helmet isn't a container that can hold candles--you're essentially "feeding" the candle to the helmet. You can't remove candles from the helmet, you don't get a used candle back when you replace it, and the amount of time the candle itself would burn appears not to affect the amount of time the helmet will burn.
