    NOS in the box, funnel, mantle, meth can, and instructions. My favorite Bialaddin!
    Ah, yes.. never lit!
    One for the album, Gromit!

    Now that is an absolute cracker, George - perfectly set up as well with everything symmetrical. That is EXACTLY how these 310s left the factory!

    If anyone's restoring a 310, THAT'S what they need to aim for - PERFECTION... =P~

    Very nice sir, puts mine to shame and I thought I had a good one. The Chrome is most unusual as most appear to be a sort of mint green, it really sets it apart. Surely the colar and frame have been painted...just perfect, I with David on this one....perhaps we should have 'Lamp of the MONTH' or similar accolade.

    All natural, no paint I can find. I don't know how the chrome ones match up the painted one, but I would think they are probably a little harder to find than the painted ones. I have a couple of painted ones, too. This is without a doubt my favorite Bialaddin lantern!

    Wow @george
    That‘s one beautiful lantern. Is this the one you’re saving for me?

    Now, about your reflection in that super shiny fount ....... I’m glad that you are suitably attired, I don’t know if I could have survived the shock. :shock: :lol::):lol:

    Cheers
    Pete

    Thank you for all the great comments. They are appreciated.
    @AussiePete I at least wear an apron...especially when I fry bacon!

    @george, just a small comment: please put something soft around the bail so it won't damaged the chrome tank.
