Here is the etch of this lamp. The annoying thing is I can't date it accurately, as Crompton in their infinite wisdom only used a 2-year cycle on their date codes, go figure...

Same etch as on mine I got a few years ago.

There seems to be a never ending stash on eBay, either that or no one is buying them.

Or the guy just has a lot of them. We don't care much either way if loads of people have them or not, we think they're lovely; we've got some and that's what matters to us. We collect lamps primarily because we like them; if they're rare as well that's a bonus, but we wouldn't say no to any lamp if we liked it

I got mine for just 40p each! (not from ebay).
Had I known how rare they are, I'd have bought the whole box of 25 my 3 came from.

Yes, a well worth while addition to our collection.
