    Hi, was a bit worried about getting this one going because I heard some where that they can be evil beasts to light.
    Had a go on the weekend this was the result.

    Dipped the pre-heater in methylated spirits. The second dial is to send a jet of air through the middle of the pre-heater not fuel as I first thought.

    Next to a Tilley TL106 it doesn't look too bright but going through an old mica globe it aint that bad.

    Mantle on it is a 500cp Anchor.
    Roars like a steam train.
    Had it running for several hours last night, didn't even need to give it a pump up. Though it did take about 170 pumps with pre-heating and getting to running pressure.

    I was surprised that Coleman pumps and caps fitted this lamp, there has to be a story behind that. If any one has info, I'd love to hear it.

    There will be a serial number on the control wheel. If you have not already done so then please contact Terry Marsh so he can record it. ::Neil::

    Hi Anthony,

    Today i discover your lantern Aladddin Model: A in action :clap: :clap: :clap:

    This lantern it's a rare bird.
    This lantern is very atypical and technically interesting.
    I hunted for five years, she came from the USA in may 2017, a collector who sold it to me, she wears the N°.147 on the red wheel, she is registered with Terry Marsh.
    Despite the physical appearance, this lantern and completely in it original state factory.
    I find it really fantastic look !
    When it will be fully restored and functional i will make a publication for reference galery.
    I allow myself to slide some pictures :

    Hi Quangtan,

    Yes this lantern is old and rare, it is a "satelite" in my collection.

    It was manufacturing from 1931 to 1934, today it is brought to the surface 23 copies worldwide, including a prototype or pre-serie.
    A former of Aladdin Mantle Lamp Of America Of Chicago said "this lantern Model A has never been produced in quantity"
    With the economic context of the time was a commerciel failure.

    Regards,
    Titoo
