    This is a 200 cp rated paraffin lamp from AB Lux.
    You could choose some different versions, and since this particular lamp is nickel plated, it would be the DHF. You can also see the ornamented version here.
    You were also able to choose between two different globes: either a spherical one or with a more shapely one, and since this lamp missed that part, I decided that it should be with the round globe...
    I use a faulty cut Primus 1024 globe since it almost has the right proportions. It should just be an inch taller, or so, as it looks when you compare the catalogues image and my lamp. The catalogue says "matte", so a frosted globe would probably be close to the real deal. I just have to put it in the blaster to make it a full-frosted one.

    The 1904 Lux catalogue has this lamp listed, and it turns up the following years. Unfortunately the Lux catalogues aren't very common so it's always hard to date these lamps.

    Conny, I wish!
    But since it's a gravity lamp, I'm afraid it falls outside the direction for this forum with pressure lamps.
    Might post it in the Open Forum, though!

    I agree. It would be nice to see the Victoria and it's half sided sister. The open forum is the only option I can see.
