    Hopefully the subject of this post isn't out-of-bounds on CPL because it's butane-fuelled so the fuel isn't pump-pressurised in the font but it has some antiquity (1956 or thereabouts) and perhaps has some curiosity value for CPL members.

    Here's the stove attachment, featured on Classic Camp Stoves HERE.

    Some details.

    The globe is marked Sili-chrome, produced by glass works at Cloisy-le-Roi, south-east Paris.

    The mantle I used is a Veritas one.

    I have a French mantle of a similar pattern but much smaller (too small) a size for the Lilor.

    Welcome John - great post, as well-detailed and illustrated as all your posts over at CCS. It's good to see your interest in unloved gassies still persists. :thumbup: :clap: :D

    Probably just a typo, but isn't that 'Choisy'...

    You're right, a typo David.

    Thanks for the welcome! It's true, I still cherish those "Unloved gassies". Got one or several more here somewhere ...

    G'day @presscall nice to see you here.
    The lamp head is very elegant and beautiful but all I can say about the tank / fount is it's functional. :lol:
    I'm glad you finally found this accessory for your stove :clap: :D/
    Great post as usual

    What a rare stove/lamp set, I guess not many of them survived. This completes every collection :thumbup:

    The only disadvantage I see is: You cannot cook in the dark ;)

    Great 50,s butane stuff there John, and always with detailed photos and documentations :thumbup:,.......but,
    as a lover of Lilor ( and French "lamps" in general) from the 10,s into the 30,s, I can´t see any
    resemblance of the pressure lamps I own. These early lamps are ornate and very into traditional French lamp design style making,
    whereas your "lamp" is the product of the "modern" Primagaz company (Lilor successor) and maybe just loved as the modern style GPA:s,
    both in style and in the need of gas cans ;).
