    Hi Folks,

    Have just found this Bialaddin T10 lamp, excellent hood and original glass (vapalux). Appears to be complete and original.
    Any ideas on date.

    Thanks, Stevie

    Would the original globe be marked “Bialaddin”?

    It would - and be round-shouldered rather than with an angled corner. Part No. T805 rings a bell...

    They're becoming quite hard to find these days - although Base-Camp are listing them currently for £29.95...

    It should clean up nicely. The enamel on the hood looks in good condition. :thumbup:

    Yes, the hood and burner are in excellent condition. so good that I feel obliged to repaint the fount and find an original globe for it...

    @BigStevie I’m with you on that, go for the “doctor”. It’ll make a really nice lamp when you repaint the fount. Looking at it again and I reckon you got a really good find there.

    I think there may be other colours that are 'near enough' - given the lamps are now 50-60 years old, who's to say what the original colour was and what it is now. Any pale creamy white should fit the bill. :)I'd leave the bottom of the tank 'as is' and spray the visible parts as close as I could get and not worry about any slight mis-match.

    Halfrauds seem to have drastically reduced the range of paints they hold in stock. Call me Mr Cynical if you like, but I dare bet that's something to do with them now offering an aerosol paint mixing service... :-k

    I’ve got an account at a local motor factors and they’ll mix whatever you want. They’ll colour match too, so perhaps get a match made to the hood. What can be left original, will be.
    The only down side of having a spray can made up is the cost...


    Halfrauds, like many others, are finding ways to reduce product lines. I guess the days of the humble aerosol are numbered.
