    Hi all,

    A good exemple of Optimus lamp N°258.
    She wears the original glass Schott & Gen Jena very particular with the clear part on the top typical of model N°258.

    He misses the white reflector.

    I think wat is around 1933/34 for the date of production.
    Thank you for correcting me if i'm wrong !

    I will contact Karli for the dimensions of the reflector.

    The reflector must be difficult to find.
    I can think with a project to make it.

    Thank you for sharing

    Best regards,
    Titoo

    Congratulations on finding such a fine looking lamp. I know of this type of glass with the clear part at the top which allows more light to be reflected downwards but this is the first time I've seen one.
    Very nice.

    Henry.

    Hi Erik

    Can’t help you with any Optimus parts but I’m sure there are many here who can.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Regards Jeremy

    Hi Erik

    I suppose the best way will be to introduce yourself as a new member in the Pressure Lamp Discussion Forum section and give a brief biography. Once you have received some welcomes introduce your lamp(s) and any assistance required.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards Jeremy
