    Hi all
    I just finished this lamp which, I believe, is a last generation Joker lamp from G & A (I haven't found docs)
    The lamp was entire but the fount had to be resoldered all around. I had many leaks at the bottom.
    it is fitted with the n° 101 gasoline burner which have been patented in 1921. This burner is provided for inside, there is an outside modèle which is more protected against the wind.
    As usual, the burner had to be seriously cleaned

    That’s a fine lamp indeed. Well done on a very good fettle.
    Cheers

    Your work on that lamp is more “resurrection” than “restoration”. Congratulations on a fine job.

    Cheers

    Thank you all
    If somebody have a picture of this old lady in a catalogue,
    I shall be happy to see if my hypothesis about the model name is good ;-)

    I love these French table lamps. The design is outstanding.
    And you must have a special anosmia as you always find the ones in the top class.
