National Stamping lamp

#1

Post by bluepen61 »

I acquired this National Stamping lamp today. Curious if anyone knows about it. None of my shades fit the holder.

I like those a lot. Before you invest too much time make sure the fount is sound. There are several here with bad founts.
The shade holder doesn’t match any of my Nulite examples.

Is the tip cleaner present and functional.

Did I say I like those lamps?

Thank you!
Kevin

Thanks!
I did a little digging, PLC by McRae and Dr Marsh. I was troubled by my two torch lamps here because neither of their burner match.
I believe your lamp is a Model 10? Look a ways down the page.

So the shade holder holds the shade on the real shade holder, which is missing as well as a missing stud that holds the missing smoke bell? But I do have the eye nut for hanging.

This pic is a mess. It’s what I’ve found!

All of my similar lamps are Sunshine Safety Lamps - first one below is same as the one on the right above. The second below was a gift from fellow collector. This reminds me that a higher priority in my new-found retirement includes gettin all of the SSL's running and looking good!

Well, this is interesting, the shade holder appears native to the lamp. It is a two piece hinged holder. The Pricker works. The tip is clear. See photos.

Loosen eye nut.
IMG_20210429_092224952_HDR.jpg
Tighten eye nut.

Still, none of my shades fit. Even my Aladdin shade, it's too big.

Probably heat metal fatigue resulted in dropped and broken shades?

Still... Joy!

If you are a member of Deanne's group on Facebook you will find a similar lamp and shade holder.

The group is private so I can not share the link, posted on 9/13/2020

John, thank you for posting this, I learned something when I was trying to figure out why mine are different.

Thank you!
