    the fettling work is here ; http://0flo.com/index.php?posts/54245

    This lamp is not exactly the same as Conny's, but exactly matches the catalogue's page I own. The burner is a 150 candles power and is reputed to burn for 15 hours with 1 liter of gasoline. This burner is the inside burner. The lamp can be fitted with an outside burner (n° 501 bis) which is more shut in order to keep the warm.
    It could be add a shade but I prefer the design without.

    Michel, that is one splendid lamp. I've always admired the complexity of these French lamps. Engineering marvels.

    Also, a very fine fettling of this lamp. I enjoyed your very detailed post in the link. Nice to have this old gem running again.

    Well done Michell.
    Your lamps are top of cream and a pleasure for ones eyes. French lamps are in general superior in garnish and solidity in combination.
    Thanks for sharing ;0)
