    These 250 cp Geniols with a new nameplate were the last of their kind. Identical lanterns of the 250 cp size were never produced again.It was an irreplaceable loss for the fans of pressure lamps.

    Thank you for sharing that. Always something interesting to learn from you. 1998 - must be one of the youngest lamps in your collection.

    From the enclosed operating instructions you can see that the operating manuel are dated 1998 and you can see that the lamp was sold in Deizisau in Germany in a garden furniture leisure center.

    I understand that this lamp was manufactured in Portugal, correct? Were Geniols manufactured in China anytime at all like Petromax?

    You can no longer find the name GENIOL in this entire operating instructions from 1998.However,the lamp is marked with GENIOL several times.But you can find the name HEINZE in the operating instructions as well as on the nameplate.The drawnings used images of Petromax lanterns and not Geniol lanterns.I have seen Heinze Geniol 150 cp and 500 cp with a new nameplate and 6-digit number and assume that they were already manufactured in China.
    But this Geniol 250 cp with a 4-digit number was certainly still made in Portugal.I've never seen a Geniol 250 cp with a 6-digit number.

    A nice last of its kind.
    I wonder if they would someday manufacture the Petromax and similar ones in Germany again.

    There is currently a real witch hunt on fossil fuels in Germany. If an environmentally friendly fuel were available at an affordable price,I could imagine a small production for the leisure and nostalgia Industrie.

    That will never happen.
    Look at Vapalux. Which had all the tools. Look at the prices. Who can afford those prices?
    Labour and other costs would be extravagant high.
    Even the nowadays Petromax lantern are not made and build in Germany for those reasons. And they are not cheap either.

    And even if you have the money, You can order a new lantern. Where is the fun of the hunt and repair and nostalgia?

    Vapalux from South Korea is available but the price does not appear to be within the affordable range of the general user.:content::-s
    Maybe a niche market for those with deeper pockets?:-k
    Let's see...assuming we take the design of the current Petromax.
    With parts made in China and probably assembled in Germany.
    If it costs the end user €300 +/-to acquire one, I guess we can already make some fairly accurate price estimates for one that is completely manufactured in Germany today.:shock:.
