    Nice lamp. I have exactly the same one without the filial on the bottom of the hanging frame.

    Mine works very well, and makes a beautiful cosy light. Have you had yours running yet?

    @Olga Svensson
    I have made a translation of your messege to English for our members that do not read Swedish.

    ”Hello. Recently I bought this lamp. It says only Optimus, Made in Sweden.
    I am curious of the age?
    Thanks in advance.”

    To me it look like a model 253 and I might guess it is from the 40s.

    Varför blir texten på svenska när jag skriver på engelska?

    Translation from text above:
    Why does the text appear in Swedish when I write in English?

    I bet you have some translation program or app installed on your computer or phone.
    Have a look at your settings.
    (Du har säkert någon knepig automatisk översättning påslagen på din dator eller smartphone.
    Det har knappast något med denna site att göra
    .)

    I have moved your post to the reference gallery.
    Back one step in the forum, and you can see other Optimus like your own.
    (Or easier, just click here.)

    You are welcome.

    Hi Olga,

    Welcome on the forum.

    Very beautiful lamp :thumbup:
    Know that your lamp carries the precious glass glob of origin :thumbup:
    I think your lamp dates from around 1935/1939.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Regards,
    Titoo.

    Here is mine on a snowy evening last winter.
    Got to keep changing hands, so your fingers stay warm.

    Unfortunately the globe was smashed before I found the lamp. This is a Korean replica.
