    I found this lamp in a pawn shop in a small town in South Africa. It was completely covered in silver spray paint, and was incomplete. The pump, globe, globe holder and filler cap thumbwheel nipple was missing.

    I did what I could and ended up with a working Frankenstein (DIY parts and a Veritas globe) . It burns bright with a merrily hiss, and I have become quite fond of the little lamp.

    Thank you very much gentlemen. My wife would say that I don't need the encouragement, but it really is satisfying to bring an old lamp back to life.
