    Hello

    The gas burner is Welsbach Arc Lamp (Intenso).
    There is a fairly large size and weight.
    I was fortunate to have come up with a glass lampshade. And not be damaged in transit.
    If you have information or details. I am absolutely delighted.

    Thanks.

    A fantastic lamp in nice condition. What fuel does it use? Looks like city gas to me with some sort of ingnition device. ::Neil::

    Hello, pete and Neil.

    Thank you very much for your appreciation.
    This lamp's initial from the name of her likely to use gas as fuel.
    Details or other information. I do not know anything.

    I hope to know you enough to tell the story better than me.

    With respect and appreciation.

    OK I have spoken with Alex Marrack, an expert on all things gassy, and here is his response.

    Cannot really see enough to be sure.. there is certainly the usual gubbins for pilot light adjustment, I think the extra adjuster at top and the 'soft' tension spring and extra tap is for a flashover device, so that when you pull that the pilot light is temporarily elongated so it lights all the mantles... it saves them having to light one from the other with potential firing of unlit gas in the chimney, leading to broken mantles.. I cannot see any actual 'ignitor' in the lamp except the pilot light.

    Certaily appears to be a fairly normal gas cluster 'arc' lamp. Alex.

    Thanks Neil and Alex,

    I think ... is it possible. For burning.
    For the first time. Need to turn off the glass cover.
    Because the position of the edge. Engraved on a glass holder.
    And the pilot light (a little) the first time.
    And a small flame, it will at all times. Only slightly. So easy to spot the next light.

    May be one or more times per week to maintain.
    This lamp is the only way to use this method because it can not open the cover glass every day.

    I was only a question.

    With respect.

    Hi, Neil

    Estimates ...
    How many brightness (cp) are possible. Of this lamp.

    With respect.
    Thanks.

    I have no idea. I have no experience with gas lamps. They don't behave like pressure lamps and in general the mantles are not as bright. At a guess maybe 200 cp but it could be more. ::Neil::
