    This very original Guardsman came my way recently. Has only had a light clean and a service. One small chip on the hood. image.jpg

    Very nice example! One chip in the top, I call that "perfect"!

    My first pressure lamp was one just like this with a wingnut pump, it ran really well and gave me the 'bug' if it had been troublesome then i might not be here.
    It is nice to see one looking lovely like it was meant to rather than the 'had a hard 60 plus years look' that we are all familiar with.

    A very nice lamp, I do like the “wing nut” pump albeit their presence is a bit sporadic.

    Thats awesome mate, and in excellent condition too.
    You must be over the moon with that little ripper, top find mate Tilley on brother.
    Another lamp to be proud of in your ever growing collection.
