I found this one in the free adds.
It just needed a tidy up and new fluid and wax.
The original photo wasn't that clear and I initially thought it was a 70’s BDOC lamp because of the colour which is a matt siver/grey....but it definitely had the Jet base.
Once received, I could see it was clearly a Jet. It has the Mathmos Jet sticker on the bottom, with another circular orange sticker (original wax colour perhaps?).
Just surprised that I haven't seen more of these over the years....was it a limited run?
I'm assuming it's the original colour?
Thats early 90s just prior of crestworth being renamed to mathmos, mine has the crestworth diamond logo on the bakalite base plate then above it a mathmos silve and black sticker with jet and dated 01.08.93 also has a orange dot on it, ive found this base gets alot hotter than the black version
I think it's called the gunmetal version, I've got one too, but after a while I preferred the standard chromes
Thanks both, that's really helpful. That's exactly what it is.
Mine's dated 1/08/93.
Quite an industrial looking model, and not my favourite. Probably not a keeper, but nice to know what it is.
