    Just bought this. Perhaps the pump is an addition?

    Usually Knight lights are badged so I’d say Gloria I have one the same It looks a bit roached and I’d be interested in it for parts if you’re considering moving it on

    I have this listed as Gloria model AJ. It is the same as Knight Light model 311 but is unmarked which we assume makes it a Gloria. Nice rare old thing which will probably work with a bit of fettling to the burner stuff. ::Neil::

    Not completely bad. It could be better, but I'm happy with my 100 yo lantern.

    This lamp cannot be a Gloria, the generator gives it away. This is a really interesting lamp that just helps cross the T's and dot the I's.

    So, if not a Gloria, what is then?

    Juan, that is a good question and of course the most pertinent question that should be asked.

    Quite simply, I should have let sleeping dogs lay. I should have known a simple question like yours would be asked. If I wasn't prepared to try and answer the question I should not have stated what I did.

    The answer isn't a simple one. The answer should be backed with proof but from previous experience, no matter what I say, no matter what proof I offer, it will never be enough. Despite the fact there is zero proof many of the lamps being designated as Gloria are Gloria, when it comes to my research, zero proof generally wins out.

    My original statement should be ignored and collectors should carry on thinking as they do in regards to 'Gloria' lamps.
