I had less than no time to spend in an antique store I was passing by today and couldnt look this over closer.  Just snapped these 4 pics.  Pretty nice porcelain....thing....not sure what it is.  Any ideas?

90 bucks.  A bit steep considering I know nothing about it.  I plan on going back and seeing if I can find a make or some other clue

For that price, I think you did right passing it up until you at least know what it is and if it's desirable.

I can’t say for sure but i am picturing a gas lit barber pole. They do exist.  But I did not see one just like that. And apparently very pricey with the glass.

I think I see a fuel cap in the first pic. Otherwise, I'd say HW or gas.

Didi it have a pump?

Shoot, I might just pay $90 (if I couldn't haggle down) just to take it apart and see how it works.

Neil will be along shortly to pin it down.  I will search the PLC, but trying to pick out that size is tough.  It does appear to be quite large.  I have 16' ceilings, and functional dormer windows, so I have room and ventilation. 😎

Right, Neil will likely know. The burner could be alcohol or kero, IMO.

Ya I apologise for lack of detail at this time.  It does look like a fuel cap in pic one.  It looks like the cap is on an insert style fount and burner.  I can't see where the air intake would be.  Curious what the little holes on the burners would be for.  The thing was large...close to 20-24 inchs in height and pretty heavy.  White porcelain bottom.

and I think alcohol or something more flammable. The fount cap day non pressurized. The lack of soot says no preheat. The open holes could be the ventilation for a good clean burn or possibly to preheat.

Talk about taking the long way around.  These images are from an Asian website, and were shared by a poster in France five years ago on another lampie site.  That's the lamp.  I'd be fabricating parts already. ðŸ˜Ž

Looking at the original pictures I'd have to give the whole establishment a good looking over for the missing upper parts and globe.  They may be on a shelf somewhere with dried flowers in them or something.

An interesting find indeed.

1898 patent drawing shows the pressure relief in the cap.  So it is a pressure lamp, just not the way we think of them.1451001702-Tito_Landi_Patant_1898_ccs.jpg

Chuck,

Wow.  Incredible you were able to dig that info up based on those 4 pics.  I am in awe.

This particular antique store has been around for decades but the original owner died several years ago.  He was a grumpy  old man who hated to sell anything!  The store was more a place to legally hoard.  After his death it closed and a couple years later reopened under the same name in a new location.  This was my first time visiting it and I was impressed.  I am very curious to go speak to the lady and see if the top piece of the lamp may be laying around somewhere in a back room or storage area.  
It seems to me this light is from France which also makes sense as we have several French homsteader communities based around our province.  My own grandfather was an immigrant from France.

The patent photo is a bit confusing but it would appear that it tuns on the same principle as the svea123 stoves with the wick concept, no?

Lastly, if I can dig up more parts I may drop the cash.  If it is only the bottom I dont think I would be up to the project.  would anyone be interested in it?  With so much missing I would try get her down around the 40 to 50 dollar range.

Thanks again Chuck.  Awesome.

Paul

I agree, I think it's the indoor model and almost complete.  The top piece appears to be upside down.  More a reflector than a shade.

Ok, went back.  Still didnt come home with me but learned a few things.  No chance they have the other pieces but they are willing to price drop to 75 dollars cdn (which for you Americans is like 12 bucks!).  The thing has been kept in pretty good shape.  It has a large internal fount that would hold a lot of fuel.  The wheel is currently stuck but I didnt want to force it.  The other REAL cool thing I never captured in the pics, is that to light it, the 2 little catches on the base open up amd the entire top piece extends on the vertical posts...like a trombone.  It is a really cool design.  When fully open and extended, it has to be nearly 3 5 ft tall!20200801_133932_copy_665x887.jpg 20200801_133837_copy_665x887.jpg 20200801_133855_copy_665x498.jpg   Soooooo, do I try find some pieces for this thing?  It is one of the most unique pieces I have seen in a long time.

I know we are thrifty but that really needs to come home with you!
Some will say the globe is made of unobtainium, but it’s not. I see ones close all the time, and for the bell you could use a number of things.
I might even have a globe here. The good news is it a large piece which limits the demand. That probably hung in an atrium or train station.
@Lilorpetro what are your thoughts?

I sent a message to a guy on the CPL forum who has redone one.  Hopefully he can answer my question on parts.
Having looked at the drawings, I think you are correct.  It is likely only missing the globe.  I wonder, however, if the indoor model would fit the outdoor top hood?  I think the full porcelain top amd bottom looks incredible.  
What is a "ridgid" mantle?  They say it takes a ridgid mantle which are hard to find and expensive. 
Likely going to get it.

I would go back for it. That looks like it takes a globe that Craig Seabrook can reproduce. The smoke bell may be something that can be made as well.
