Looks correct to me but someone will confirm for sure.
That would come home with me after very little negotiation regardless.
I just purchased this reproduction.
Notice the differences?

Question is, original burner or Coleman Q replacement?

Original would have male threads where gen mounts. If it has that, the gen is unobtainium.

We will see.  I’ll pass back by that shop again on Tuesday.  I’ll have to decide what to do then if it’s still there.  I guess it could always be converted to a burner with an easier to find generator

If by chance you decide to leave it behind I’d love to own it, perhaps even just the shade! I’m working on a torchlite now. Either way make sure it isn’t cracked and that it rings!

Actually looks Coleman already!?


Or if you need / want a Coleman set up I have a few on the shelf for such an occasion. 

Thank you

I went back yesterday negotiated a price and got it home in one piece.  Not guaranteed with two four year olds,in a van packed to the ceiling with camping gear.  I still have a couple questions though.  Is this pump cap original?  It doesn’t look like my other CQ caps.  Also, concerns were raised about finding a replacement generator.  It was recommended I get one from OCP.  The one shown is a Q99 Style.  This one has the newer style generator.  Just wondering if this newer generator is threaded backwards as well, or can I use Coleman if needed.

Thank you.

Looks like a standard Coleman generator... I would think Q99 Q77 R55 should work just fine. I'd use the one on it. Beautiful lamp for sure ðŸ˜

The cap kinda looks like the caps on my Pre-Coleman SS Torchlite lamps. I do not have any Coleman made SS lamps to compare.

so it looks to have a coleman valve n burner on it instead of the original SS one . a common thing to see . Kevin the fuel cap your showing is a national stamping and electric and wont fit here but it looks like it has the original cap on it . that shade is a real beauty !!!

something in the back of my head made me go check my SS lamp . wile the fuel cap you have will work just fine i believe the original SS cap was a little different cosmetically from a coleman fuel cap . my fuel cap here has straight up n down knurling not cross hatch , the air stem in mine looks like any other quick lite stem but i kinda wonder if originally the knurling on the SS air stem would match the knurling on the fuel cap , i cant say that positively , just sharing my thoughts here .

How do we determine that?

The initial post shows a shade with a distinct band at the top and the leaf tips do not extend to the top. I am referencing Darcy’s shade guide. There are older previous posts stating SS or Sunshine offered these initially shiny then frosted?

Being a Newbie loon I’d really like to know.

In retrospect perhaps the lack of a parting line at the bottom of the “band” is tell tale?


Thank you!

I used a lifeline for the following conclusion. It’s the real deal shade and lamp!

I’m loosely quoting below!

”Depression era Sunshine Products, out of Chicago”!

“Offered with both Sunshine Products and Coleman generator configurations as they ran out of inventory.“
“the twin to that shade is on the Arcolight on page 315 of the ICCC big book”

“You’d be advised to leave that lamp as found”



Thank you!

Thanks for the info, comments, compliments etc.. from everyone.  Steve Thanks for double checking on the cap.  I looked in the book and it says the entire filler/pump assembly should have vertical ridges.  For whatever reason the cap did not look right to me at the store.  Too utilitarian for a lamp, too new, something.  Hope the shade is original though.  Still seems to a bit of a debate on that.  There is no question that I think the frosted style looks much better though.

I found what's believed to be an original a couple of years ago. There are pics on my post below.
