Another estate sale score today (was only 20 min late to this one)

Under all this patina is one of the most dent free and close to original lamps I've acquired. It clearly says Model "M" on the bottom of it but after consulting "the book", I've noticed some interesting features



First out of the gate is the lack of a tip cleaner which would put it more like a Model "N"


Second is what the book refers to as the "Early Rounded Valve Wheel" but is not referenced to this lamp


Unfortunately there is one issue with it though, and that is the shade only looks good from one direction. (unless I leave the price tag on it then it looks really good)


Pretty much everything is frozen on it, but it does have about 1/3 fount of fuel in it based on sloshing it around.  Should be a good project for me, as this is my first Torch light lamp. Any cautions or warnings are appreciated. I won't be getting into it anytime soon but I'll save them just the same.

Awesome find.  I would definitely have grabbed that lamp, but would have passed on that $20 shade.  🙂

Indeed, a lantern with "character" is good but a shade with "character" not so much!

306 shades are fairly common since rayo and others used them so should be pretty easy to replace.

Great project and piece of history there. I agree that if you want that shade, they can be had without the added modification, for about the same money.
