    I've used the #20 model and date from a post previously made by Colin.

    According to Colin these lights were fully imported by Wizard Lighting Systems of Australia.

    Two complete lights (minus globes) came with two spare burners, hollow wire with connections, a Wizard Lighting Systems tank and original operating instructions.

    I've cleaned and assembled the light that was in bits.

    All it's lacking is the on/off chain and globe. When I say 'all' I suspect the globes will be as rare as hens teeth.

    I really didn't like the gallery being in as bad a condition as it was so I decided to remove the remaining chrome.

    I polished the gallery and put the lights back together.

    It's a shame the photos are showing reflected light that makes the gallery look half chrome and half brass. The rings at the end of the chains are brass too.

    I finally found some globes that are correct for the era. These globes came with some Wizard Light Co hollow wire lights.

    I intend to have this light fixed permanently to where it is hanging now and be a working light.

    Nice globes there Matty.
    You just have to connect it to the tank now and fire it up .

    I intend to do that Bob.

    The verandah extends the length of the house top floor and the ground floor where this light is hanging. I intend to place lights along both verandahs and see how they look.

    This Nagel Chase is just put together roughly. I'll pull it apart and tighten everything up soonish, when I get time and see how it goes.

    Thanks Jeff.

    The lamps look so much better with globes on them.

    Thank you Michel.

    Of course it is a stock standard Nagel Chase. It's not rare, it's not very ornate, unlike most of your wonderful lamp.

    Still, I just don't know what it is about hollow wire lighting, I just like it.

    I think it's most likely the era of lamp history they come from. The earliest beginnings.

    Some of your incredibly wonderful lamps actually helped put hollow wire in my blood.

    Down to 8 degs and 4:50am. I'm outta here.

    Wow :shock: what a fantastic one Matty - and a fine piece of work you did too.
    The shade you found fits it very well and the lot looks like one large drop.
    Wellsaved :thumbup:
