Originally I had intended doing the same as Stevie, also using a copper ML93, but had a look at the description in Jim Dick’s book. I was surprised to read that in 1938 Tilley added a glossy black version of the stand which was intended to hold a chrome conversion lamp. So it was no contest and I think the results are stunning. Hope you like it Anthony and thanks again for your generosity.

    I’m politely asking Stevie not to be so annoying! I’ll try to get the lamp lit up though it’s pretty enough to be a shelf queen.

    Come on Jean! (I’m sure if you ask John nicely he’ll show you how to fit a mantle and light it......)
    One day I’ll I want to see the standard lamp lit too (I know, I’m pushing my luck now).

    Ha ha Stevie, you know me so well! Actually there is a pic of the FS lit up for Mam’s 94th birthday on 25 November 2017 if you can track it down. I held a great FS light up as an alternative to the Great Ballarat FL6 light-up. Would you believe it, no-one came to mine.

    I found the photo of your mam and your good self with the FS, a delightful image! Was the lamp running on the malt, or just you two girls?

    So, what do I have to do to get you to light it up next time I get over to Chez Jean?........

    Are these stands reproductions and if so, are they available from someone?
    Or anyone that can give me the measures so I can make One myself?

    A real beauty you have there!

    Yes, Jean. But to be pedantic, ;), your original post in this thread says “This is the second of the oak hexagonal stands that Anthony sent over...” and (to Anthony) “... thanks for your generosity”.

    I have one as well and am waiting for the right lamp to put in it.

    Your lamp is stunning, Jean.

    Cheers

    Tony

    Each time someone replies to this thread I read the comment obviously... but then I have to scroll up just one more time to look at the lamp in all its glory. It really is quite beautiful!

    I’ve been afflicted with the lampitus for a year or so now. Friends and family glaze over or run away if I bring up the topic, all the usual stuff. If there was ever a reason needed to justify our passion (which there isn’t) beyond any counter, this chrome and black ML fulfills that task with stunning beauty to spare.
    I’m sure everyone has their favourite, for me this is the just the best lamp I’ve ever clapped eyes on.....

    I have to agree with you on that one Stevie, she is a delight.

    And to think that just a couple of months ago I contemplated stripping the chrome off this conversion lamp! It was only the scorn poured on this idea by fellow CPL members that stopped me.
    Thanks for all the lovely comments folks.

    @Jean J Jean, I don't collect lamps, although I do have a Bialaddin T10, but this sure is one very lovely looking lamp! I could fall in love with this one, very easily!

    I do. :a:clap:
    Like everyone else I was just knocked out of my sox.

    I looked at the pics as I was heading out for a few days and didn't read what you had written.
    When I came back and found it was 'that one', I was tickled pink.

    Well done Jean.
    Good form. :thumbup:

    Hey Anthony, you could turn out a shedload of these and paint them black! Might be a bigger problem finding a chrome conversion lamp though. I used what was in the garage left over from doing up Victorian iron beds, it was Japlac high gloss enamel.
