    Does anyone have a complete Kitson Excelite, I have half of one, it had been converted to take a Tilley burner system before I obtained it. Jeff.

    Hello Pete, thanks for that and I reckon that you are correct about the burner system.

    I have obtained several lamps which have been converted in a similar fashion.

    I live in Shetland and the power was late in arriving, so lamps were in use for much longer, and for many lamps parts could no longer be obtained and folk still needed light, hence the conversions!
    The attached advert is from 1923, Jeff.

    These photos show the base plate and the Kitson logo, Jeff.
