    These photos show my second example of this early wall lamp, this one is in better condition, so I built it as an indoor lamp.

    It was incomplete when I obtained it, so it's built with what I had.

    This style of Tilley wall lamp first appears in their 1927 catalogue. Jeff.

    Hello Conny, I'm glad that they are of interest!

    I'm making good use of the fine weather and polishing some of my lamps.

    I prefer to polish them outside, as I'm not keen on the odour of metal polish lingering around indoors, Jeff.

    Jeff,

    Please excuse my ignorance.

    Is that shade a Tilley shade?

    Is it considered a no no to use shades other than those Tilley brought out for Tilley products?

    I have some parts coming and wish to put a WL25 together as best I can.
