all the ones i have seen previously just had an open hole in the bottom ? this is the first i had seen with the collar on the bottom . looks original to me , makes me wonder if the collar had broken away on the others i saw ? What you say ???

by the Way Dwayne Hanson has reproduced the clips to hold em to the shade holder , 10 dollars for a set of three clips ... looks like i need some clips now .

I've yet to figure out how they are supposed to attach. Maybe you slide them up onto a hanger like a 355 globe hangs on? Both of mine just have a raggedy torn open bottom. I've seen the example on Terry Marsh's site but I still can't tell from the pic how it all works.

I picked up a lamp with the screen in good shape. The collar is cracked and is missing the upper half of the shade. Otherwise in decent shape.

Does the date on the collar say September 15th 1908? Click image for larger version - Name: 2018-11-30 08.23.27.jpg, Views: 491, Size: 3.89 MB Click image for larger version - Name: 2018-11-30 08.25.31.jpg, Views: 480, Size: 4.72 MB

I have two of the 335 (?) screens for the QL table lamps and one small one (approx 4" or 5" in diameter) with a bowl-shaped mesh, no hole in there.
I had the 2 larger ones blue-zinc coated. They look very original and sit on two my QLs.
I've now clue what lamp the smaller one would go on (2nd image). Hollow wire?
Steve, can you please post your images again? I'm logged in but they don't pop up.
Thanks, Erwin.

I can't believe that there are no aftermarket, cottage industry type versions of these being made now.   Just within the membership of this forum, there would be the possibility to sell hundreds, if not thousands of these.

Steve, I had the same idea but I didn't want to cut a hole in the bottom.
Was it perhaps ment to be used on a hollow wire with no stem going down?
Perhaps I can bring it in March and if Roland or someone else brings hollow wires I could try it on?
I've seen the clips as well.

My screen is marked on the upper rim with
   PROTECT-A-Lite
   U.S. PATS .......  (can't read it, too small)
   MADE IN U.S.A.

Doesn't "Protect-A-Lite" mean it was made by Coleman although it doesn't say so?

These screens were from an outside vendor for Coleman and other retailers including hollow wire,inverted mantle, even natural gas lamps. Enamel Gas Globe Co. was the actual manufacturer of “Protect A Lite” .
The screens without a hole probably would not have been intended originally for table lamps. If there is some original Coleman documented instruction to cut a hole in the bottom , others including myself would certainly be interested in seeing it. Thanks to Matt Purtell for the great images and helpful research.

I sent the seller an email and asked if it was an empty box or not. He said there were 2 generators in the box. I hope that there is, that would make the deal even better for you.

Hey , that looks a lot better Larry :-) glad you found one . i have some NL vent questions in my head about your other thread ill have to address .

still too chicken to cut a hole in my screen here . but i have been thinking about it , but how to do it nice n clean ? and what size hole ? most of the ones i have seen have a pretty big bottom hole .
[DrSteve2]    Steve , Keeper of the Light !!!

coleman54
Steve , the original depiction the holes appear small as probably for the generator and air tube only. That would be the most effective for bug protection , however it would be a pain to remove and install Q99’s for regular tip cleaning and replacing mantles where a larger hole would permit removing and replacing the whole screen and shade holder assembly easily over the top of burner. This action would however be altering an old precious relic.

That's why I had assumed that the smaller ones without a hole would go on a hollow wire and therefore I don't want to cut a hole in the bottom.

Glad to see this. Those ads have a lot of good information! My bigger ones have the collar on the bottom. They fit the CQ's good, but makes them kinda hard to light. After I found out the were coated with asbestos, I though a coat of paint might seal that stuff in. Some of that original coating is still visible on the inside of one. Like coleman54 & Erwin, Matt Purtell thought the smaller ones were for the hollow wire fixtures.

Bug screens were available for a Coleman Lamp Globe as early as 1915 for Globe # 321 as
part # 321 1/2 : in the beginning consisting of both top and bottom nickel plated screens.  Later 1919-20 advertising indicates only the top nickel plated screen was supplied for this option. 
/// As a side note : the 321 was advertised and illustrated both ways as  3/4 and 1/2 frosted thru the years.
