    Hello all I found this little beauty, now most of you on the forum here me say I wont polish or respray my lamps, but this time is an exception, I believe this Kayen AP2 is in magnificent condition.
    This lamp came with everything shade, globe, upper and lower bug catchers, Kayen and Kopsen stickers as well and even a mantle.
    So this time I will stick to my word no, and I mean no work for this lamp, the shade doesn't even have a chip or anything wrong with it.
    Here are some photos.

    That is an excellent example, complete with shade. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    Edit: Does the globe have any identification? Does it have a vertical seam in the globe? and is the globe smooth at the bottom, or does it look as though it has been ground on its bottom edge?

    Cheers

    Tony

    @Tony Press
    Here are some photos there are vertical seams and the bottom is smooth.
    Why do you ask?

    I’m trying to sort out who made the Kayen globes.

    The ones with seams are definitely Australian-made. The ones with ground off bases could be from the Leonora glass works in Wallsend, Newcastle (Australia), but that’s pretty speculative at this point.

    Another whom is a bit jealous, me being a Kayen fan. A very good original condition lamp and well worth keeping in its orginal condition.
