    hello all
    Conny have already displayed an Unic n° 7,
    http://0flo.com/index.php?threads/906

    this one is a different and older model if I rely to the decoration, or perhaps it is was a "de luxe" model.
    But we don't know more about the production's year of those different lamps :-(

    I knew when I saw the lamp pictured in the recent gallery posts that this was yours Michel. You have the most gorgeous lamps!

    Michel, what a great lamp :thumbup: ! I’m not yet convinced of age differences between the embossed and decorated ones and the more plain lamps. It could still be that there were options of configuration as late as into the 40,s and 50,s. I believe though that your example could be an early one. Great 400 CP burner that only needs 0,5 kg/cm2 (7 psi) pressure for running good!

    thank you guys
    but all is not marvellous in my life :doh:
    I have a problem with the filter which is clogged by very hard carbon deposit.
    This kind of filter is full of brass wool very tightly pushed. As the filter is curve, I can't easily get it out. So the gasoline doesn't cross enough to supply the burner
    you will have to wait a little to see this old lady lighted [-(

    In fact, it was very easy :whistle:
    I don't remembered that I have a wreck, I have cannibalised the filter of the burner
    and the lamp is once again alive

    This lamp is illustrated and priced in the Haupois flyer dated 1952. This paper has been overstamped 1963 and this model 7 deleted so we can assume the lamp was in production to at least 1952 and possibly for a few years after that but not as late as 1963.

    We have no paper illustrating a "Plain" version of model 7 so any such will be difficult to date but perhaps a plain version was made before the model was discontinued. ::Neil::

    The Unic lamps was producted by E.Brodier Paris

    Surprising, I found a catalog sold on Ebay that says "old establishments E. Brodier". It is dated 1910!?
    E.brodier would have been closed in 1910!?
    I do not know what to think of :doh:

    Nice lamp !

    Is the burner unit not more an outdoor unit ? It looks to big for the frame and is very "closed" up. To prevent problems with wind.

    hello Wim
    yes, the burner is very protected from the wind but I think the lamp is too much pretty for outdoor work

    In fact, I found 2 owners of this brand, first E Brodier and later G Haupois.
    The adress is the same, 5, rue du Moulin Joly in Paris.
    perhaps is there another ?
    I also found that Peter Bendel a german collector have an invoice of G Haupois in november 1965.

    I have asked Peter for a clearer picture, but i have no response at this time
