    An easy lamp to light and handles the wind very well.

    Was advertised in Australian newspapers in 1911.

    A good post of a Graetzin 915 is HERE from @Juan.

    Interesting that the english advert shows the chain with the A and Z.
    Which are typical German Auf and Zu.

    Does somebody know if there where english letters on a chain ?
    Open and Close I guess?

    The lamp seems to be the same as mines, but the tank is flatter.

    Hi Wim,
    I have seen English lettering “On” and “Off” on the old coal gas type of gas lamp chain?
    Cheers
