THE A1 IS A GARAGE OR UTILITY LAMP MADE FROM AROUND 1900.
ITS FIRST USE WAS TO HANG BY A CAR RADIATOR OVERNIGHT TO STOP THE COOLANT FREEZING.
IT WAS SOLD AS A UTILITY LAMP AFTER THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANTIFREEZE UNTILO THE 1950'S
REGARDS DAVID MATHERI have a Protector Lamp Type A1. The reference number on the base is 56195. I wonder if you would have any information about it's age, or if it is likely to have been used in a mine, or for other use as in your FAQ pages?
Many thanks for any advise and help with this.
Kind regards R Hutchinson.
