    Hi all
    the quarantine is the opportunity to search in the barn for forgotten lamps, here is a TL I have for some time
    quite a good shape except perhaps for the paint which could be redone
    I am not very used with Tilleys
    This lamp have been delivered with an onion glass and a opal shade.
    Originaly, does the two items was fitted together on those lamps ?

    According to Neil the left globe is not a tilley
    who knows ?

    The globe on the left is certainly not a Tilley one. You can use your lamp with either the onion globe or the shade but quite OK to have both in use at the same time.

    It was common in Australia for both the globe and shade to be fitted. The globe took an insect screen to protect the mantle from marauding moths (a top insect screen was fitted to the burner gallery).

    Well if someone knows it would be Neil, I guess.
    Besides others off coarse.
    But the left one is wrong.

    A grand old Tilley!:thumbup:

    In my opinion, if a glass fits and it can handle the heat then it's okay, but that glass on the left looks like it could not cope with the heat from a Tilley.

    @Michel Ah, one of my favourite lamps, yours looks good with the shade fitted.

    The glass on the left could be made by Pyrex, they usually are and would be ok ...

    :D/not really forgotten but let's say stored in a corner while waiting for a quarantine
    I also have a KL 47 and a WL 25 :oops:
    in any case this glass can not be mounted on French lamps (too large) but it goes very well on this Tilley
    Hum I am going to try it on the KL 47

    If I refer to this picture, the control cock tell me this TL 10 have been produced after 1940
    Until what year do you think ? I don't find any document about the end of the production.
    another thing : what does XN and GF means ?

    TL 10 was replaced with the Pork Pie TL106 by 1946. The XN cock is shown in the January 1940 instruction booklet and the GF in November 1940. So the change was mid 1940. I have no idea what XN and GF mean. ::Neil::
