    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! :D/ 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!
