    A USA Coleman PQ Quick-Lite chandelier. About early 1920s as best I can judge. I have the cover that goes over the attachment ring but I tend to leave it off. There is a lot of fuel that can go into this fount. From an old hall in the area. They would have been exciting for someone to light all the time. Guess people became good at it.

    Very impressive, congratulations.

    I have two of these and sadly the nickle is missing on both. Your example is one of the best I have seen.

    Great to see one up and running.

    I assume it has no markings on it. Is that right?

    I’m working on one now, that also came from somewhere in Victoria (Australia).

    Can you post a photo of the cover? Mine is sans cover.

    Cheers
