    That is very nice, @Buggerlugs.

    Is the hood white on the inside?

    Looks good @Buggerlugs nice paint job and the hood looks to be in very good nick.
    Is the hood an original or a reproduction?
    Cheers

    @AussiePete

    I’ll stick my head on the block and say that if it’s enamelled white on the inside it’s a Tilley original.

    Out of interest, where did your family buy this lamp? Second hand shop, previous owner?

    Thanks. 40 years is only half the life of the lamp and I wondered if you knew the previous 40 year history prior to your family acquiring the lamp.

    An excellent job @Buggerlugs , Ex4 are a rarity, what a beautiful lantern, and even better when there is family history to it
