Latest lamp we restored



This is a Plume & Atwood (P & A) Royal bracket lamp. Jim and I restored this one to working order and gave it back a mercury glass reflector. There was no longer one with the lamp when we found it. It took Jim considerable work to get the burner off and cleaned on this lamp, it seems it had been allowed to dry up with a full tank of fuel so it was gummed up something terrible. Jim used a mixture of Coleman fuel and denatured alcohol to soak the parts until they were movable again and he give the lamp a new wick.
