    Hi again,

    Here is yet another French hollow wire lamp, this time of the Succes brand. This is the 150 CP Bec Succes 101 bis, a lamp near completely made in brass and for draughty conditions. I believe there also was an option for a reflector to this lamp.
    Unlike the Bre and Unic lamps with pretty simple burner construction this one can feel a bit over engineered. I took the lamp apart and I could count to nearly 35 bits and pieces for this small lamp. Works well though and I had a 250 CP mantle on without any problem.

    Hello Conny, another fine example! :thumbup:

    That's a complex burner though, Jeff.

    Nice one, just as the other lamps you've posted lately. Yet another French rarity has found it's way up to Örebro!

    Looks like "Conny-I don't really collect pressure lamps" has come out of the wickie closet for real now. ;)

    Christer, that closet door had been open for a couple of years now. Maybe you’re the one to blame for this pressure lamp addiction of mine [-X :mrgreen:.

    If that is the fact, I'm only proud to be the perpetrator. :lol:

    Seriously though, I know that you have been in to pressure lamps for many years now. But I can also imagine that more of your focus has been shifted over from the wickies to the pressure lamps along this journey, is that a valid guess?

    Christer, that is correct, but I can still fondle :content: with a wick now and then.
    The high tech wick burners as the mantle and vapour burners are still of interest,
    I’ve got a big nice collection of them.

    Oo-er, missus - I'm not sure you ought to be telling us everything you get up to, Conny - either in or out of your closet!

    Still, whatever floats your boat, eh... ;) :lol:

    I'll get my coat...

    Phonetic spelling of Mrs.

    'Oo-er, missus' is a figure of speech we use in the UK when someone says something capable of being interpreted in more than one way i.e. a double-entendre. It's use was popularised by the likes of British seaside postcards, the 'Carry-On' films and comedians such as Frankie Howerd.

    I wouldn't know if there's an overseas equivalent but I suspect not...

    hello Conny
    That is the tank you need for this 101 burner
    We both only need a long brass wire from france to Sweden to get it running :D/ :lol:

    Michel, although a very long wire I’m not sure it’s enough :) . Is it possible to pressurize the tank/container? I think you need one of these……..

    Please have a look on this page : http://lumiara.perso.neuf.fr/lumiara/fr/index.html
    under : "lampes à vapeur d'essence".
    you can read "Le carburant fut amené au brûleur soit par gravité depuis un réservoir haut placé, soit sous pression par une conduite fine"
    The fuel was supplied to the burner by gravity from a tank placed above, or under pressure by a thin pipe"

    1385493300-succes_1926__13_.gif
    and in this 1926 Guenet & Abbat catalogue "the tank must be placed at least 3 meters above the burner"
    they are called "réservoirs à chute".
