    This is an Agee Pyrex teardrop globe made for TS Nettlefold & Sons (Melbourne, Australia). It is the same size as the Tilley pre-WWII teardrop globe (No. 182, before the "onion" globe was introduced).

    I'm not sure of when it was made. I placed it on a Tilley EX93 here.


    Cheers

    Very nice Tony, it's the first one I have seen with any identification marking. :thumbup:

    That is a lovely piece of glass you have there, it must be very rare.
    It really completes the lamp you fitted it to.
    I love the old Tilley globe's with the shield logo sandblasted on, but this trumps them.
    A great find.

    Doing a bit of snooping around I find that this glass was made by Australian Consolidated Industries. ACI.

    And so were these.
