I'm fairly new to this hobby and so far I've only been hunting lanterns. I just do garage sales and local Craigslist,Letgo,etc., not really into paying eBay prices. I think the lamps are really cool, just haven't run across any. Until today. The pair were $15, I had to get them! The guy said he had the one on the right running a couple years ago but never tried the other one. The one with the shade holder is marked 7-10, the other one is unmarked, has a longer handle and a nut soldered into the base.  From what I've read in the Coleman Products book, the longer handle is older. All I know is, I've got a lot of searching/reading to do here tonight! Any tips/tricks would be appreciated. Thanks!

Nice looking CQs. Any stamping on the valve wheel of the undated one?

How about a patent date on the air tube?

Bingo! I forgot reading about that. According to the book, the air tubes marked with the British patent are on lamps that have the dates stamped on the side like the other lamp. The air tube on the lamp that is date stamped doesn't have the British patent though, only the US May 1919 patent date. I'm guessing the parts were swapped? The burner tubes look like they've been split up too. Each lamp has one lighter one and one darker one! There is a handle size difference also, unmarked lamp 4 1/2", 7-10 lamp is 3 3/4".

I'm sure your correct about parts getting swapped around, very common on 95+ year old GPAs. You might get a good picture of your mixing chambers as well. Some differences there also. I usually ask Larry @coleman54 on the early ones.

Nice lamps, and welcome from Coastal North Carolina.

Until you can find another shade holder and some shades I have an option that'll allow you to enjoy the lamps until you can find just the right pieces.

Not period correct, or even Coleman, but lots of modern shades can be pressed into service if protected by a globe.  This one is an Amish globe holder with a 220 lantern globe that our host sells.  I adjust the shades up the hanging rod with spacers if necessary to adjust the height.  I like to be able to see the valve.

Did you find a pump with the lamps?

That's a great idea! I'll definitely get one of those. Thanks! No, a pump didn't come with them.

Nice finds! Now you can start collecting all the different Coleman Lamps and shades that are out there!

Just remember when you light these, they need a pre heat on the generator. If not, you will have a big fireball on your hands. I use a Bar B Q lighter to light mine. After you run it for the first time, it will usually light while pre heating because of the left over fuel in the generator. 

OCP has some pumps. If not, a nozzle with a rubber tip on an air compressor will work. Just don't go crazy with the pressure.

Oh, but it's so much fun!

If you like the CQ you'll love the BQ, and then the PQ starts looking good.

Nice lamps.  Seems for the last few months I've been a lamp magnet.  I can't seem to get away from them.


I run one one the porch almost every night and am fixing a couple up for Christmas presents for my kids.

A few things I have learned, get a pump OCP has them for a good price.

#21 mantles tied above the burner work, but I like the #20s much better.

With just a little practice with your preheat you can light them with no fireball and very fast.

You are in for a lot of fun.

My user CQ I have a little plastic pump like you buy at dollar store for blowing up balls, it works well.

Do not try to take tube out of font, it is soldered in.

These will probably light right up. So simple and clean and what a relaxing hiss when running.

Oh, and your typical 220 lantern fill cap gasket works on the fill cap. These had a lead seal and takes some force to get em to seal. Just put a 220 cap gasket on it.
