    This lamp came into my posession at a Car Club Swap meet on sunday.
    I found manufacturer name under rust below control valve after recognizing similarity to Niels pair in T.Marsh site.
    First job is to evict mud wasp nest from air tube and pressure test. Any suggestions as to repairing pricker cleaning nickel etc please.

    I would check the fount for stress cracks first before worrying about fettling the rest of it. These tanks are prone to stress. ::Neil::

    I don't know if this is the same lamp but it looks close.

    I thought you may be interested in seeing this 1919 ad, if you haven't already.

    Yes that's the one. Made and sold by National Stamping from about 1916 to the mid 1920s as their model 10 Favorite. Also sold by Sunshine Safety from 1916 to 1923. ::Neil::
