Hi all,


This is my latest lamp restoration, a Bré (Bregier, Deligne & Cie) French company pressure table lamp.

Probably late 1920,s to around 1930. There is a problem with only a few papers for this company, so not much information here, I´m sorry.  

I've got several Bré GPA,s and two of them I have managed to identify; the 1930,s Bré No, 130 lamp and the No. 542 Bré radiator heater.

This comes from 1930 Bré catalogue and I think my lamp is maybe a bit earlier; a different font and a brass ornament cowl crown indicating

mid to late 1920,s. There are patents from the Bré company already in 1914 for the pricker needle system still used for this lamp, so it is a bit

hard to point out the production year for this lamp.

The same burner as on my other HW and table lamps, so probably 200 CP output,  as said for the No.130 lamp.

Thanks a lot Ago! Hope all is well in Canada!

Beautiful restoration and wonderful collection, Conny. Very nice detailed pictures of the lamp. Conny, the quality of you work never ceases to amaze me. Thanks for sharing!
You are such a master of restoration, Conny.  I'm always impressed!
Something strikes me with many of the early lamps, about how they made a fairly simple concept for the lamp into a work of art.  This piece is so beautiful.  Even down to the lettering on the pressure gauge.  All class.

Thanks for another great resto story!

very classy.
I'm not a lamp person or even a serious collector, but that lamp is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing it with us.
