Here is a lantern I first saw at Newark in 2004(neils) and started my intrest in the Blanchard lamps well finally after 11 years of looking waiting I got one from a fellow collector on this site and same as buses the week after one turned up on ebay never would have believed it after all those years looking!!!! Anyway it is a lamp I like. Now its all steel except for the burner which is brass as other Blanchard burners are although it is of much simple type design. The lamp has Greville street on the nameplate now this is where stills moved manufacture after 1937 so its quite a late lamp. When you look at what tilley and vapalux were making at that time I can understand why there are not many of these around they give a great light but are a big heavy lump and not as simple to service as a tilley by far.
