    Anybody have an idea what year it may be? I plead ignorance on this make. I also noted the absence of this model in the reference section. Any chance of availability of a generator?

    This will be around 1958 to 1960. I have this model listed in a 1959 K-Appliances calalogue. From the collar stamp it has to be after Queen Sove was acquired by King Seeley in about 1956 and before King Seeley merged with Thermos in 1960. ::Neil::

    @Mackburner Thanks for the info. I cleaned it up and added some fresh fuel and now I have a good lantern. Interesting that it’s made almost entirely from ferrous metals, the valve and generator being the exception. The spider web pattern on the fount is strange though. Hides the dirt well.

    Nice looking lamp @goldwinger11, I like the web pattern on the fount, quite unusual but attractive.
    Cheers
    Pete
