    No indication of any branding, even on the the instruction leaflet.

    I guess these are made without branding so sellers can add their own badge or label.
    looks to be in very fine condition,

    This one looks like a working lantern. Its almost identical to the Anchor. Only some minor difference from the picture: hood has a somewhat straighter side in comparison to that of the Anchor.
    Also the 'ears' / tightening nuts on the bail are thinner on the Anchor.

    Sometimes these have a brand mark embossed in the brass valve casting so with an unknown lamp it can be worth a partial dismantle. ::Neil::

    Is there a tiny picture of an anchor on the pressure gauge? Just a thought...

    Also, what colour is the pricker control? The closest I can match it with is an Anchor 909, 350cp. Is the holed plate that secures the collar/frame to the fount enamelled in white or chromed?

    Whatever it is it looks to be in good condition.

    You have a nice shiny example of a Chinee lamp there ... I quite like these and there are many about
    if you look on the China websites they are made in big quantities ... but the manufacturers say you must buy
    a ridiculous amount ..say 500 at a go ..some big importer no doubt will do it . there are some made in India and other Asian outlets ... they polish up great, as for the metal:?: .. nice one :thumbup:

    Looks very much like a sea anchor which is different to the anchor brand.

    I have both an Anchor and a Sea Anchor and the pump cap on this unbranded lamp is identical with the one on the Anchor. The pump cap on the Sea Anchor is slightly different.
