    Hi all,

    A old timer Aida No 214N [-o<

    The interior chimney was missing.
    I took another on a wreck of the tewnties.
    The original glass is present but broken.
    Leaking to the needle control, i will change the graphite.
    This lamp work wonderfully well, the pump is very flexible, some pump and it's magic.
    I am very happy to see this old lady alive again.
    Radius 300/400 cp mantle and fresh kerosene.

    Thank for sharing.
    Regards,
    Titoo.

    How did you managed to acquire so many such old lanterns that appear to be relatively pristine?
    They look like there were hardly used or probably preserved very well or newly plated.
    Otherwise, you might have some kind of 'magical' restoration skills there..:content:

    Would love to have an Aida 214!O:)
    Just don't see them for sale that often and when you do you usually have to mortgage the farm to pay for it!:-({|=

    MYN, George,

    They are enterely original without any dents.
    No 233 in the center and No 214 on the right also has both an original reflector.

    Regards
    Titoo.
