I have  a coleman quicklite lamp that I eventually want to get a shade for, but am baffled by the shades out there, especially on ebay.  Is there an on line or off line source/picture gallery of all the shades coleman acturally made for their lamps?

Hi David,

Have a browse through the old dirty Coleman paper library that D Bosch has put together. It is a fantastic source of info. Here's the link from the technical assistance archive:
http://http://pages.suddenlink.net/abosch1/ColemanPaper.htm
There's a section for glass shades, and in the product catalogues, you'll find many examples of both glass and parchment shades.
If you must go eBay, be careful and really go hard on the seller to pack it properly for shipping. Glass shades (and even more so parchment) are getting scarcer and scarcer, so you really don't want to lose one.

Happy hunting,

Mike.

Thanks I've got 3 lamps, no shades- frustrating.

Join the club,

I've got one original glass, and two original parchment. The other three glass are repros/modern. I foolishly missed a parchment shade with the sailboat for $30 before I knew better.

Number of lamps: 14. Not a good shade to lamp ratio! Keep looking, they pop up in odd places.
