Like to know all about this...
Hard to tell all there is to tell about a lamp. It's better you ask more specifically what you want to know.
I assume you already have checked the reference gallery?
!!!! Thats a nice peice of lamp right there. Whats your plans, lightup and clean?
... ...Looking good!!!
.....Has the Lamp been with you for a while, Minna??
I haved i for about 5 years and now it's just stading at my Office. I a litle bit afraid to lite it.....just think that it's nice. Wonder how old it is?
Is it unik?
...It's a lovely Lamp!..
....As for the age, well I'm sure someone will be
along on here soon who will tell you whereabouts on
the lamp to look for numbers?
The date stamp is at the bottom of the tank.
You have the table that translate to the correct year here.
Just focus on the letter in the small circle. Don't mind the number.
If you try to light it you should check a few things first.
Befor fiddeling with it secure the glas elsewere. In a locker or somthing so no kid,kat or human can accedently break it. These glas globes is not easy to come by... treat it like a full glas of water.
Open filler cap and check, old kerosene in tank?, remove it in that case. Also check the gasket in the cap. Often they have dried out and gotten hard. Poke it with somthing to feel its condition. Replace if hard.
Remove pumprod and lid. Check the leather pump cup. Replace if worn or cracked. Lube with oil or vaseline if only dried. Por a tablespon of kerosene down the pumptube and let it sit there for a while. This to soften up the pumpvalve gasket. Then put it together and try to pump. Carefull so the edges of the leather cup isnt folded the wrong way (up). Test pump, does air flow into the tank?
Check if cleaning needle is ok. Watch the jet when turning that wheel on the side of the tank. Is the needle moving up and down? If not it might be broken, replace.
Then time choose. Try to light it? De-sooting (sota ur den)? or just polish it up? When i polish them i use autosol on nickelplated things, on pure brass i first use vinegar+flour+salt to loosen up the oxidation.
Can you send your answer to me in swedich, my english is not so good.
Thanks for all help.
Please take that in a PT (ta det i ett privat meddelande).
Have you checked the date stamp, Minna?
It would be interesting to see exactly when it was made.
If I read some papers I have from Nils´ and his research correctly, it could be 1938-39 (which would mean AC or AD in the date stamp), but I might very well misunderstand things.
I think your estimate is very good (going by what we can see). Now we just have to wait for the answer.
I agree that photos of this lamp would be good in the gallery.
Well, it's your estimation.
I just read what you have compiled, and hope I don't get anything wrong. Or that things not has changed. New data can (will) always change some things.
But as I understand it, this model was made just for a pretty short period between 1934-39, and that small plastic wheel was introduced in 1938, is that correct?
Hello Minna !
Well, the assumption was that quite a few of the lamp models stopped in 1939, but examples of some of them (1015, 1022 and 1024) have been seen with dates of 1946 or 1947. Here is another example. There must be a good explanation, but I don't know it. There is no catalogue material with these models after 1939, but the physical evidence is there.
It's nice that we got a date on this one then!
Nils, Regarding the gap... I guess the war might have ceased production of some models.
Perhaps they started up some again when paraffin became more available, which took some years after 1945.
Thanks for the additional pics, Minna.
I'll sort them out so they will be possible to place directly inside the post when I get home.
You would think if they were going to keep on producing the lamps, they would be listed in a catalogue. They are not in catalogues from 1945 or 1947. I've run out of guesses for why they exist.
Back to this particular lamp. It should be easy to get going as it is basically a 1020 burner.
Welcome aboard Minna!
