    Here's my W&B Bialaddin 305, 1951-54.
    I'm almost ashamed to admit it but I didn't even wipe the crap off of it! This is a great example and very, very well taken care of, at least it was before I got it! lol

    That is a beautiful example. Congratulations.

    George, I am interested to know how you could date the lamp '51 to '54.

    According to the info I have this model was manufactured between 1951 and 1954. As far as this example goes, I can't say exactly when it was made. I can only give a date span.

    Sorry to hear about your arthritis flaring up because of the damp weather. My Nan on my Dads side always said the same. Let’s hope the weather improves for you soon.

    Regards Jeremy
