    Hi all, while desperatelly trying to get my QL lantern working (with help from Jeff I finally succeeded, thanks again Jeff!) I decided to try my CQ. It took about 15 minutes (checking things where air-tight and putting on a pair of mantles) of fettling + fuelling her up. The glass shade was bought at Hytta (Germany), I think these were meant for Aladdin wickies but it fits nice. While I type this, it is happily humming away behind my back O:) .
    From earlier posts re this very lamp, I learned the colour of the fount is probably called "Flemish Brass" if I recall correctly.

    Best regards,

    Wim

    Hi Wim very nice indeed even though the glass shade, may not be original to the lamp realy suits it.
    On another note what a real beautifull iron stove you have there

    Hi Brian, yes the combination of this lamp & shade pleases me very much! I bought the lamp last year and looked out for a shade at fleamarkets and second hands stores but no result. I then finally decided to "go for it", and ordered the shade in Germany. Wished I had done that sooner! :roll: :lol:
    The stove is a French GODIN, burns very well on both coal and wood. It keeps the whole house warm and uses about 1500kilo's of the black gold per winter when no wood available. I like to watch the flames through the glass at the low 'front door' (sorry, not visible in the photo), and the heat it throws of is amazing :clap: .

    All the best,

    Wim

    Hi Wim
    yes, a very beautifull lamp,
    I prefer those lampshades rather than the Coleman ones
    they look too much sophisticated for me
    I love the GODIN french stove also ;-))

    Shades like the plain white one you have there are very easy to come by in the U.K.,if i picked up every one i'd seen i would have a house full...

    Like the lamp very much Wim but love that stove! Chilly evenings now in N.E. Scotland and a lot worse to come, will have to start using some of that precious oil soon.
