Reichsbahn Lamp.

Recommended Posts

Nice little Deutsche Reichsbahn lamp.

Can't find any info' on the maker's name "WG"?

Made after 1937, it has the German Eagle and D R stamped on the top.

Before 1937, it was just a simple D R.

Construction:

The little screw on the back comes away, and the bracket slides down to get easy access to the inside.

How was it used?

Can't see any thing to suggest it had a gas attachment, so it must be a simple candle holder?

The underneath has a square metal piece, so may be a wall attachment fitted under this?

Here is that elusive part..

It's a Paraffin candle in it's own little tin.

Not sure how you re-fill it??

Thanks Richard, it's nice to bring back to life, some thing that hasn't been used for many years.

The top becomes quite hot after even a short time.. so you have to be careful when handling it.

That’s is great. Looks amazingly similar to the portable lamps being sold at tactical stores currently. Forget the name but you them frequently on infomercials here in the states..
