    Hi all

    I believe american fellows will recognise this design. Lilor was, in the 30's, the sole agent for Coleman lamp in France and it is indubitable that there was some agreements between the two firms
    This lamp is a Coleman french model . The fount is Lilor but all the top of the lamp is american inspiration.

    Gasoline lamp of 300 CP power (2 x 150)
    No cleaning needle system, only a brass filter in the hanle tube and a very small brass wad under the jet.

    Don't be astonished with the handle decor. This handle is steel made and was rusty. I have been obliged to redo the paint but this is the genuine appearance. I have seen two of those n°1960, this was the same.

    A very fine and rare lamp Michel. The burner inspiration from US is obvious. Nice original 307 shade on this lamp.
    Please tell me where to find another example of this lamp [-o<!

    A beautiful old lamp. It’s so good that it’s preserved for the future to experience. Well done @Michel.
    Cheers

    Excellent restoration of a fine lamp. :thumbup:

    Can you explain how you did the paintwork on the handle?

    Hi Tony
    Some explanations :
    you need two colors of acrylic paint (the paint used by children at school) and a crackle lacquer tube.
    you have to paint the support (here in red) and let it dry
    Then the next day, you put a layer of cracking varnish.
    pay attention, you have between 5 minutes and 20 minutes to lay the final coat of paint (here black)
    the more you wait, the more cracks will be fine, you have to do some preliminary tests.
    hoping I am clear

    I think it is better to put a layer of wax or varnish after a week of drying
