    Obviously not a lamp but when the opportunity presented itself to purchase this I had to have it. I must be mad....no comments please @Gareth Shepherd

    Looks pretty complete an baring any major failures I'm hoping to get the frying pan on it later..

    Excellent! :thumbup:

    To be pedantic, it is a lamp, but the kind we call a stove.

    Cheers

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I lit this, but the thing is a beast, not bad for a lamp disguised as a stove...

    Great find! The only one I’ve ever seen in the flesh is The one Jean found. Must admit it’s on my radar, just need to spot one......

    Wow .....Nice one. I’ve not seen one in the wild. I don’t know if many made it to Australia, few and far between I suspect.
    Enjoy, and that bacon would taste extra nice being cooked on the Tilley. :D/
    Cheers

    The one I bought earlier this year was the first I had come across since starting to collect Tilleys and it certainly wasn’t cheap.

    You wouldn’t have expected an Aberdonian to pay three figures, I feel I’ve let the side down here.

    You know what you can do with your mushrooms and king prawns @Gary Waller

    Was this the one you picked up £20? I didn't realise, but it makes sense now!
