22) Nice original wartime siege lamp. This is candle powered, the candle being in a tube on a spring plate which would keep the candle pushed up and in the same position as it burnt down. Apparently issued to Royal Artillery gun crews to aid aiming the guns at night time. It is in excellent condition. It has never been painted but is steel coated in tinning type layer? it shows surface wear and dulling (still shiny to the base) and has minor surface rust which will clean up nicely. The class magnifying lens is in place and perfect. The inside of the lamp is nice. The reflector being excellent. all fully strips diwn easily. the side is maker marked but undated. 100% wartime though.
