    Lovely! I wish I had that lamp and I also wish I had the skill level you have too.

    I've started on the next one. It has a very small tank:

    It’s coming along very well. The hard bit was getting a very crusty layer of verdigris that was all over the whole lamp - it must have been near the ocean for a few decades.

    Next one to be worked on is the lantern discussed in this thread that had both Gloria and Lind-O-Lite features:

    The cosmetics, at least, will require a bit of work!

    I was surprised and pleased to find the "Lind-O-Lite" stampings on the tank base plate after I had removed (by chelation) much of the rust. More rust to go.
