    Hello Chris and welcome to the forum.
    Have a look at the Primus section in the Lamp Reference Gallery, you will see "Primus Date Chart" which will tell you that your lantern is from 1937. Any single tie mantle for 300 to 400 candle power lanterns will be O.K. on your 1020.

    Welcome to the forum Chris. That looks to be a nice honest example of a 1020. If you don't know already, parts are available from fogas.se.

    It is very hard to see, but is that a Høvik Verk glass on it?

    Hi Chris, welcome. It will clean up well. It is worth preserving so stick with it. We look forward to seeing it working :thumbup:

    No it is not. I think the glass has been replaced AF4DC2EE-2E70-4CF9-A3BD-7E9D56C4A268.jpeg
