Hi all,
This is my latest lamp restoration, an outdoor gasoline fed hanging lamp , Succes 104 Autonome, from the French company of Guenet & Abbat. Probably made around mid 1920,s and is said to give 160 CP light output.
The burner head on this lamp is the 103 "Bec Forain" and has the same burner components and parts as the "Bec 101 bis", seen here

As always, when it comes to lamps and burners from the Succes brand .... many parts and many joints to connect. After many working hours, it turned well in the end. OK performance, although maybe not optimal! This is the only example of this lamp, I know of!

Beautiful restoration. I do have one question. How do you fill it up? I see no way to set it on anything. Looks like it's only supposed to hang. Maybe hang it on a coat rack to fill?... Maybe I'm missing something obvious

That’s a cool lamp. And it was steampunk before that was a thing. Well done

Thanks all,
Toby …… I think they used some kind of spring extension to lower the lamp for filling fuel.
Here are examples from that company Guenet & Abbat and the "Succés" brand!

What a great lamp!  Another beautiful restoration Conny! Was the lamp in pieces when you acquired it?   
 Thank you sharing all the photos and saving another  rare lamp.

Conny, I enjoy seeing your usual excellent work; that's quite an interesting lamp.  You sure did a fine job with it, and as always, I really like all the close-up photos and vintage advertisements.

That's quite a fascinating design. I've never seen a design like that, so your post is quite informative as well. Thanks for sharing your restoration.
