    Hello ASHOK KUMAR, Tilley made the ML., tanks from the 1920's until sometime in the 1960's, so it's quite likely that some were exported to India, so happy lamp hunting.:thumbup:

    I contacted the seller of the lamp, he tells me it belonged to his granny and always sat on the sideboard in her croft house and was used daily until the 1960s. He added that he had no memory of it being in a base or a hanger.
