Lot 22: W. H. Tilley Floodlight. An impressive and large free-standing paraffin-powered lamp from the renowned Tilley Company, this lamp appears complete with a wooden handle pressure pump, mantle (still available) carrying handle, stand and patented crack-free front glass, retaining its original black enamel finish, it stands 66cm high, possesses instructions for use and appears to be in working order. The name Tilley became a generic word for a kerosene lamp during the Great War. (1)
