Hipolito - pressure lantern (1) - chromed brass

Hipolito - pressure lantern (1) - chromed brass
Germany - 1950-1974

This is the Hipolito H502 pressure lantern for use outside where light is needed, such as when camping, fishing or hiking. You can use petrol or kerosene as fuel. It needs a sleeve on the inside top nozzle for burning. This lamp has not been used for a long time I have not tested it for functionality, but it looks all complete. For operating instructions see YouTube: Hipolito H502, and several movies of the subject, also on the Petromax HK 500, as this is the same lamp. It is a nice project to restore, looks good, the glass is not broken. The weight is approx. 2.5 kg, therefore shipping costs are higher then usual. This lamp is sold as seen in the pictures. Please see all pictures as they are part of the description.
