A really lucky find!
And directly follows the conflict.
A non lit lamp is only half as beautiful
As a bright shining lamp.
Great lamp, Phil.
Did you find it in RSA?
@Tony Press , yes, it came from the Pretoria area in Gauteng, South Africa. Mid to late 1950's, the bakelite parts are sill bright royal blue. The scratched numbers on the base seem to be 3/9.
@bp4willi Fortunately I have another 816 that I use once in a while so I will not be even remotely tempted to light this one. I will however try to duplicate the shade brackets and rings to make a shade for the one I use.
Wow! That's really a super find! I'm stunned, as this lantern comes with all its accessories and seems to be unused, though well stored for that long time.
Enjoy your new item!
That would be an interesting project and very practical too.
It really is completely unfired.
Very, very nice....Cant be many left in the world in that condition.
Wow! Congratulations Phil! I don't know how you find them, but well done.
I have posted the instruction manual in the Reference Library here:
