SOLD SOLD (04/05) An Original WWI Trench Folding Lantern and case Dated 1916. 19439. - 19439
A lovely original WW1 dated lamp with storage case. Manufactured by G. POLKEY LTD, BIRMINGHAM, dated 1916. The top brass plate reads ‘USE ½ CANDLES ONLY, whilst the bottom oval shaped plate gives the makers details and the date 1915. This is a wonderful example of these rare folding candle lanterns. Made during the war years to allow easy movement and storage. The lantern measures 12 ½ High and 5 ¾ inches in width with 8 glass panels *internal frame loose to one of the panes an easy repair*. The lamp was made by ‘G. POLKEY Ltd’ in Birmingham, England. It would have been assembled by hand from parts that were made by machine and hand. The sliding hinges are formed from wire and hold the panels together to form a sturdy structure that can be folded and unfolded quickly and easily. The steel case has a makers plate to the front ‘Jas Hinks & Son- Makers-Birmingham’ and a leather carrying strap. The lamp fulfilled an everyday need by combining this novel technology with an ancient light source, the candle. While some generators were used to provide electric power to forces during WW1, their use was limited by cost, weight and the problem of re-supplying liquid fuel; Solid fuel in the form of candles was safer to transport and store than liquid fuels, so lamps like this would have been used regularly for lighting purposes. As shown in the book ‘Tommy’s War’, British Military Memorabilia 1914 to 1918 page111. Great care had to be taken when using these four aspect lamps as careless use could bring down a heavy barrage from the Germans. This is your opportunity to own a little bit of British Trench Warfare history. The price includes UK delivery. 19439. (Top shelf store)
