    Posting this lamp on here as it should be documented on here its a seriously rare IL31 I do not own the lamp but got chance to fettle it and its now in running order tho has a mind of its own every time you light it
    Not fettled a lamp for some time and this was a challenge total rebuild of the vapouriser but when it runs right its a sweet lamp looks great with the vitrosil globe
    some pictures are from mick from a previous post I can no longer find but here they are again
    cheers pete

    Great fettle of a rare and beautiful lamp. I love the advert where it states a 2/- (shillings) allowance on returned working but, carbonised vaporisers. This is a very English thing.

    Regards Jeremy

    Thanks for all the posts lads
    Yes a truly rare lamp most people will never see one tho we hope to have it lit at Newark next year for folk to see.
    Rare is a word I see often on this site but used for hard to obtain stuff not like this piece I would say is really rare unobtainable really none have survived to collect
    Glad some of you at least saw the photos
    Cheers pete

    Good Day

    Can you please comment on which fuel this lamp runs on? I ask because the pamphlet refers to oil.

    Regards
    Johan
