    Following on from Neil's comments about the other lantern I posted, I got a nagging feeling I had another one somewhere. As I was raking around the in loft looking for something else - ta-da!

    Absolutely no question about this one:-

    Missing the top (and globe, again :-({|= ) but otherwise in better condition than my other one, maybe a little 'mix and match' exercise is called for...

    !!!*** David. These are seriously rare and you got nearly two?? This is borderline obscentity. All you need now is the Veritas one and a bowl fire to complete the set.

    I have one of these Thermidor 303s but it does not have the paint on its tank.

    Odd these. I have seen more of the bowl fires than the lamps. Mind you neither is common but they do seem to work OK. I passed on my bowl fire and the lantern is a little rough but it is the only one I have yet found. Nice things to have in the collection. Obscure English lamps. The only one yet to be seen is the Burmos lamp. ::Neil::
