    An early Swedish lantern named Universal. Was sold by the company AB Sinumbra in the beginning of the 1900:s
    See catalogue sheets in the lamp reference library. There is no stamping on the lamp and it is not proof it was their own design or just a branded model. It is bigger that similar lamps. It is fitted with a mica globe made by Fred Kuntz.

    This lantern looks as though an AGM burner has been married to a Swedish tank and hood. The support collar, globe cage and burner are identical to AGM Model 334. Perhaps Sinumbra made the tank and hood and bought in the rest for resale. ::Neil::
    This image and lantern belong to Terry Marsh in Chicago. You can see how similar these lanterns are.
