    Hi all,


    This alcohol donut lamp has been stored in my "cold case" box for maybe twelve years. The tank was cracked and several burner parts were destroyed or missing. A couple of years ago I found a scrappy sibling and now I have tried to puzzle the parts together. It is a kind of puzzle as there are many parts and the burner case is very tight. I also had to make a new fuel feed tube as the original had a crack. Finally got all the pieces together and got it to shed light again, maybe after 110 years of its birth.

    This is a Hugo Schneider HASAG alcohol donut "Lipsia" lamp for domestic use indoors.
    Could be find in a 1910 Hasag catalogue ( Jürgen Bredenstein hytta.de) and also in the 1911 Goldberg catalogue. A very sophistic alcohol fed lamp with an integrated automatic pump filling a pre heater cup. Ca. 100 CP according to catalogue info and a nice looking small donut lamp. I have searched Hugo Schneider Hasag patents for this lamp, but struck no luck!

    That is a lovely lamp, a real beauty.
    It is looking lovely for your restoration work, and its aways a treat to see them running again.
    Well done.

    Have you seen either of the other two versions Conny, or an advert even? The mind boggles.

    @Jean J No Jean, I have only seen the brass version. Christer has a nickel plated Russian "Promet" donut alcohol lamp;
    may well have been manufactured by Hasag Promet (Hasag ?)
    Here is a catalogue image of the white one - white enamelled burner housing and white painted donut tank.

    Conny, what a great..,. ah, forget it. I've said it so many times now, you know how I feel about your lamps and your restorations. Obviously the detailed photos and information. Just creating the topic is a feat unto itself.

    That's interesting. I have found the trademark application for Hasag in America from November, 1910. Are you aware when Hasag first commenced as a company? An American trademark application from 1910 doesn't preclude Hasag from being established in Germany earlier than 1910.

    @Matty I would like correct that to "1910 Hugo Schneider AG catalogue". For many of us Hugo Schneider AG and Hasag is synonymous,
    I don´t know when Hugo Schneider AG got the trademark "Hasag", but Hugo Schneider as a company goes back to 1860,s and as Hugo Schneider AG
    around 1890.

    No worries.

    It was important for me to find that Hasag had a presence in the US prior to 1914 because of other research I am working on.

    Nicel lamp and great job, as usually.

    A question: where did you get the nozzle? I have a very similar lamp, nickel plate, and no idea where to get it.

    Thank you.

    It's actually more like Ha for H alone (that's how the letter H is pronounced in German. Same as e.g. K to mention another, which is Ka.) Schneider AG
