Nice to see one working. These are getting hard to find and when you do they are expensive. Look for a serial number on the Hex nut of the tank connector and for a date and cp stamped on the burner case rim. Model 1300 should be 350cp. ::Neil::
The top hood is sitting strangely low.
It would need ventilation there.
A splendid old lamp!
That’s a very fine lamp, @Kawpan.
That is a beautiful lamp, I hope it's one of your favourites. Nice to see it complete and running as well.
With those long arms it looks like it is the export 'tropical version.
Yes they do reduce the aspiration and in fact a lot of these lamps turn up with that top hood missing. The London market traders normally discarded the hood because they reckoned it cut the light power by a half. ::Neil::
Yes correct the hood it was modify a little bit. So, when I light on lamp will move them out. but the original one on another model when put the hood. lighting will be down or same like Neil say, I think, this is one reason when we found the lamp we will loss this parts. someone making the leaf reflective plate in addition and some model they have it.
Here is number on the Hex nut but the cp on burner I saw them but not easy to take photo because need remove some parts.
