Early 1900’s Primus No 632 Blow Lamp

SOLD Item #0267

This table lamp has been made from an old Primus No. 632 paraffin blowtorch made by B A Hjorth & Co of Stockholm in Sweden. This blow torch has clearly had some heave use over it’s long life and has sustained some knows and blows, this wear combined with lots of lovely detail including engraving on the brass and embossing on the filler cap and handle means that this lamp just oozes charm.

The blowtorch has been cleaned, polished and clear coated to reduce tarnishing in future. It has been professionally and sympathetically converted to a table lamp and has been fitted with a grey mottled fabric covered twisted power cord which has a retro style inline switch.

The lamp can be fitted with any E14 SES (small edison screw) bulb and is shown in the photos with both a filament candle style bulb which is quite bright and a “flickering” flame bulb which is much dimmer but has an interesting little moving flicker.
