    I have only just acquired this lamp. The unusual part of it is the multi hole hood which is just stamped VAPALUX HALIFAX. I have never seen one before with this marking. The lamp is a very dark maroon and the frame collar is also this colour, though most of the paint has now gone. Really it is just another example of W&B moving slowly from one model to another. Apart from the multi hole hood this lamp is identical to the Vapalux 300 which preceded it. I have added some photos of the more commonly seen hood.

    Very interesting lantern - Could the Halifax reference mean it was made in Canada? Are there other places with that name?
