Here is my latest restoration, the Akron 121 G "Utility Lamp". This lamp has about the same burner assembly as on the 102 G lamp, but with a smaller font, handle and shade. 300 CP light output and gasoline fed burner. I'm not sure exactly when this lamp model was lunched but guess mid to late 20,s. This lamp is not that common as the Akron 102, and especially with the original shade.
I think this smaller type of table lamp was called for by the "market", to get a smaller, light weight portable table lamp easy to carry around in your home. There are similar size lamps made by other big American lamp companies at that time, end of the 20,s. You've got the Nulite 210 lamp and also the Nagel Chase Superlite 15W (Montgomery Ward) as examples of that, as you can see on the attached picture.
This lamp just needed some cleaning and worked perfect with two Peerless mantles.
