1915 Sunshine Safety lamp

#1

Post by Toby »

This lamp is identical to a Coleman AA/NA lamp in everyway except for the top plate on the fount and the shade option. Shipping records show these were shipped from November 1914 - October 1915. The lamp shows it's age, but I'm proud to add it to the collection.

Thank you all for the kind words. I really enjoy running these A burners.

Steve the only other item I've seen with this style of soldered badge was on the early A style lamp that Coleman built for SS. My guess is this must have been one of the earliest of the new A (AA/NA) style lamps and Coleman used up what they had from the previous model. Most of these I see from other collectors have the stamped plate like you mentioned.

Nice work as always! I really like the way the artichoke shade looks (lit up) on that lamp. That looks fun. I like the sunshine tag and extra details on the lamp as well. Thanks for sharing.

You’re right about that shade holder.
The more common SS holders are great for their proper catalog shades and some of the National Stamping shades. Your typical Coleman shade holder won’t hold some of their shades properly.
This exquisite example being Coleman made is awful special.
Thank you!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!
