    I think this is a Gloria but it may be a bitsa, I guess Graham will let us know.
    It is not complete but what is there is just about perfect. Shade not original.

    Nice lamp, cannot say I've noticed a copper font (could be hidden under plating) but Kayen did produce some in copper, the handle for that model is usually straight sided as in gallery. and the globe holding arm is different to the usual Gloria / Knight Lite ones seen.

    Graham, I'd have to say the wooden handle is most likely not correct either. Very soft porous timber and just too clean.

    These are the spares, both with different arms.

    Anthony .
    The burner is correct for made in Australia.
    Has the flat support bar and round flat knob in end bracket . .Also the small bracket
    for the burner tube has the screw in the top
    The Gloria Chicago have a different bracket ,thumb screw in end and plainer burner tube bracket with screw in side of it .
    Just checked some of mine Australian ones like yours on lamp .
    Also the globe locating lugs are longer to Aust .

    Thanks Bob, I like to have the finer details sorted out. How do you feel about the handle and is the tank the same as any of yours?

    After talking to Bob the final decision on whether the burner fits the font or not is a definite maybe but maybe not.

    Another strange Gloria. It appears to be a model 20 with a home turned handle. I was not aware that Gloria Aus made a copper tank though. Possible of course if the guys on the factory floor decided that was what they were going to do that day. The tank is not right for model 20 though but then it's copper and the 20 is nickel plated brass so you might expect a slightly different profile. Here they are side by side. Kinda the same but not quite right. ::Neil::

    Well found @Anthony.
    Very nice looking lamp all the same. I hope it turns out legit, but whether or not, it still is a beauty and I for one would love to own it.
    Cheers
    Pete

    That was posted over 4 years ago :lol:

    She has been running many times since then and has always been one of my favourites.

    (Could do with another polish now though)

    Thanks Pete, that’s one of the great things about this forum. It doesn’t matter if it was 4 years ago. The information is there and still fresh to use as references to help solve lamp mysteries still to come.
