    Wow, that’s different. A nice to have for sure ...... I have no idea who made it though.

    Interesting piece. It's not in the Blowlamp book so I would guess pretty rare. ::Neil::

    That's an unusual one. No idea about who's the manufacturer. Maybe you can figure out what's on the pump knob. Something's casted on.

    :-k Or a Franken(blow)lamp, perhaps - possibly some steampunk-type abomination. Having said that, it does seem to have an even patination so maybe it's correct. Basically - I haven't a clue... :doh:

    @David Shouksmith
    It doesn't look like a steampunkt stuff to me. Most steampunkt-oriented guys would incorporate some kind of 'modernity' in an otherwise fine piece that usually transforms it into something that no known manufacturer would have ever made on a practical sense. And that's in the name of 'Art'.
    What's shown in the picture is obviously a blowlamp.
    Far as I know, Steampunkt guys don't convert anything into some sort of 'lowly', practical equipment as a blowlamp.

    Which was why I used the word "possibly"... ](*,)

    Talking about Steampunkts, I could have sworn that I've caught a glimpse a while back, of a fancy-looking fragrance burner of sort with some multi-coloured lamp bulbs hanging from the ceiling of the main hall in a high-end vaping centre located in a more affluent area of town. Couldn't remember exactly which town or in which country.
    Instincts told me that the fancy burner used to be a Tilley OM53 or something similar.

    Correction: OL53 or fifty something.

    Hasve a look here Home and email BTCA@cox.net

    The vintage Blow Torch book I have by these guys is a first edition dated 2007 and I would assume they will know more now so it would probably be worth contacting them. ::Neil::
