    Hello! Everyone!
    I'm a korean stove & lantern collector called OTOGI.

    I introduce you VAPALUX lantern made by ENGLAND in 1942.

    It is bought on E-bay long before by CHOI CHUL JUN who is my best friend.

    It is a entirely lantern of brass, and also lantern handle did made in brass with very specially shape.

    I guess this lantern was used for ship by VAPALUX at the time.
    I hope your many opinions this lantern.

    Thanks.

    Hello Otogi, welcome to CPL. That is a lovely lantern indeed. I like the pressure gauge style on that model lantern. Some members may give you more information on that stove.

    Hi Otogi,

    The bottom of your Vapalux E41 looks good and it has the red catalin control knob which appeared on the very first of the E41s in 1940. Everything about the bottom is fine, unfortunately the hood is from a Vapalux 300 model. The 300 was introduced in 1942 and as we can see it carries the government property crowsfoot and year mark for 42. The heat deflector on the hood and the handle are not Willis and Bates parts and appear to be homemade.

    Please don't let this dishearten you too much because the bottom of the lamp is still a much sought after item. Vapalux E41s with manometers are not common. You can now try and search for a top!! The handle will be easy. There are several photos of E41s in the reference gallery.
