    Ladies and gentlemen

    This lamp arrived this week and it is just beautiful. I have had this one on my wanted list for a while.
    And I could do a local pickup.
    Lamp is marked AO. And the price is written by pencil on the top flaps NOK 95,50.
    I replaced the tanklid washer and pump leather, And fired up with an Optimus 250 CP mantle.
    I believe this lamp has seen little use.
    Gave it a clean with soap and hot water and it looks like new.

    Thank you guys

    It's a lovely lamp. It came with the instructions sheet also dated 1950.
    Will post it when I get the time to scan the papers.
    On the top of the box you can see Kr 95,50. Maybe that was the price in 1950.
