    I found this lamp in an antique shop a couple of weeks ago for £18 which was not bad considering it was only missing the pressure release screw which meant I just had to rob one from a scrap Anchor. Odd combination of colours with green and red plastic bits but I have seen others like this so I assume it is perhaps correct. We don't know the model numbers for them but this one has a rapid blow torch preheater. The hood has been painted with a VHT paint so I can't get a decent image of the stamping but there is enough visible to be sure it has the Light Brand logo. Manufactured in the PRC by the Kwong Ming Factory and probably dates to around the 1960s or 1970s.

    All LightBrands 2oo-lamps has this mix of green and red. They have even green enameled innerhood and white enameled protectionplate in the bottom of the cage. The 200 is high-quality lanterns but I dont know about this type you have, I did never see the 350cp with booster on but it sure looks like LightBrand.

    Hej,

    neat little Lantern. A friend of mine has the same 200CP type, and it's a bright and reliable working horse.
    It seems to be from that earlier times when the Chinese still produced some "Quality". Remarkable is indeed the enamelled inner hood and center plate.

    BR, Martin
