    Welcome Ashok.
    Seems you've got yourself a nice early Petromax.
    I reckon there had been many Petromaxes being imported into India in the earlier half of the 20th century. You might have heard of Racek.
    Most of the lantern appears to be original. Not too sure about the glass globe.

    Welcome to the forum. There is a lot of expert help here, all you got to do is ask. Enjoy the restoration of your lamp and many others.
    Cheers
    Pete

    Although the glass globe is not original, I like the design of these multi-pane globe replacements a lot and they certainly have a definite charm. I would keep it.

    I've seen multi-slatted glass globes before on some lanterns. They are less prone to shattering due to thermal expansion/contraction. Here's a similar, mine, with two halves instead of that:
