Dear all,

For introduction, I am Gurucharan from Bangalore, India.

Have received a Brevet Titus lamp for restoration. Not sure which mantle would be suitable.

Thank you one and all in advance.

Kind regards,
Gurucharan K

Welcome!!
I'd never heard of those. Here's what I found on Google so far. I'm just not sure where you would get that mantle. But there are folks with more knowledge that will be along shortly.http://www.lumieredeloeil.com/lumiara/en/titusen.htm

Looks like a Tito Landi. 

The gas appears to shoot upwards or vertical with a post in the middle of the burner cap. Is that what you have? Pictures would help.

Members have discussed the Tito Landi here before. I'm not sure but it appears that a Coleman double tie mantle for the North Star lantern may be used. Maybe any double tie mantle?

Greetings and welcome Gurucharan,

Your lamp is not one I'm  familiar with, but it sounds interesting.  This link was very informative.  Is this similar to your lamp?

Lamp which I have received for restoration is different from this one. Have posted the pic.

After doing some research I see you may already know that Tito Landi lamps originally have that conducting rod in the top of the burner, like yours seems to show.  The mantle hangs from that. 
Can you determine whether yours takes alcohol or 'gasoline'/benzene/petrol/napatha? The alcohol orifice would be a bit larger than a 'gasoline' orifice. Apparently they were made available for both fuels. 

Here is a link that may help where they discuss the Tito Landi lamps:

As for a mantle, I now think you may be better off inverting a Peerless 24a and tying it below the rod on the burner cap of course. A 500cp double tie mantle might still be a good one. Here is a link to our sponsor's Peerless 24a mantles for sale:

NOTE: This may be available for sale in India as well since they are made there.

You might be able to use a large 10 cm "Butterfly" mantle that is made in china as a replacement mantle. They are inexpensive if bought thru ebay. Here is a picture of one hung up side down with a ruler next to it to show the size.

This one looks like a double-tie mantle to me:

Michel in France proposed to use the old Aladdin Upright mantles hanging from the fork:
Third picture from top: http://metronius.free.fr/Lampes_m3c.htm
You just remove the mantle from the wire structure. Can still be found in the Bay.
I use them in my Tito Landi's as well.

I wonder if these would work?

I'd say those would be worth a try.

@Gurucharan K

I could part with one of those pictured above. Get me a measurement of the mounting area of your lantern and I'll see if it would fit.

Measurement of the mounting area is 22 MM

The below 8cmx10cm mantles might be worth a look. They apparently shrink up a good bit. The lantern in question seems to have a burner similar in design to the current butane lanterns, but probably larger. The distance from the top of the burner assembly down to the mantle tie point might be a good dimension to post.
