    I was very lucky with this BR49, when i found it.
    Basically in great shape.

    Just needed a good old polish, and i also changed the globe over as, i couldn't move the lower bug catcher out of the way.

    Lamp looks stunning, it’s one that is missing from my collection...](*,)
    Just wondered why have you changed the glass for a later one?

    @Gary Waller
    G'day mate, because the lower bug catcher gets caught, and its hard to remove, nearly impossible.

    That'll do it for sure. I had to stop using my lower bug screen for this reason.
    Cheers
