Karbid lamp and spares box with most contents from Jersey, Channel Islands.
This is one of the more unusual pieces of kit to find even over here. I think I have only had 2 of these in 40 years of collecting. The lamps themselves are fairly common as are the Karbid containers. The kit itself has Hindenburg type candles which can be used with the lamp when its been converted from a Karbid lamp and there is also a candle adaptor which allows the lamp to use a normal household type of candle. All in all the humble old Karbid lamp was a pretty versatile piece of kit.
Hope the photo's do it justice.
All the best from Jersey.
