Joseph Lucas #354 Carbide Acetylene gas sidecar lamp in excellent condition.
This acetylene Lucas lamp is likely to be post 1920. Every No. 354 Lucas sidecar lamp that I have seen had a different chimney to this one. The earlier ones had a round chimney, a bit like the Lucas rear lamps. This one has the flatter (more conventional) chimney that you would expect to see on a headlamp.
You’d be forgiven for assuming that someone simply used a headlamp chimney when restoring this light. However, the back of the chimney os clearly stamped with all of the Lucas information, including the lamp number. It’s in the usual font too.
Anyway, this Lucas sidecar acetylene lamp is for use with a remote generator. It is nicely restored with Japanned black good nickel brightwork.
The 3in diameter main lens is accompanied by ruby rear lens on the side and rear-facing.
It’s a lovely lamp and has been restored to a high standard.As it has been stored for some time, it has a few small nicks in the black near ( and on) the rear mount.
