With a quick look in Neils PLC I'm thinking a Powerlight "Armstrong lamp".... maybe
Ah yes this one is not illustrated in the PLC because I don't have it in any catalogue. It's a Nulite for sure. That burner is quite distinctive and the burner is illustrated on a model 310 table lamp. I am reasonably sure it is a variation of model 110 listed in the PLC as 110B. ::Neil::
yes- its a nu lite- but does not have original generator--- original gen has sort of a little skirt around it at about mantle level--, I am guessing to draw more heat into the generator ~~~~
That generator is patent US1415180 applied for Sept 22 1920 and granted May 9 1922. The purpose of the inverted cup is to permit match lighting so is an aid for starting rather than an aid for continuous generation. ::Neil::
I always thought it was to keep rain off the valve-- haha-- seriously thank yo for the info
Nulite advertises this as being better than the others because you could light the lamp with half a match instead of the two matches other makes required. I have not tried this mind but it is probably about right. ::Neil::
