These Model 10 table lamps were manufactured by Nagel-Chase Mfg. Co., Chicago, Illinois.
This 300 cp, match lighting gasoline model was sold with several different shades during the 1920's.
Model 10A (left - in Conny Carlsson's collection) and 10B (center) have the original shades;
Model 10 running (right) is in Neil McRae's collection.
Note the vertical tip cleaner directly below the base of the generator.
Nagel-Chase used the large "eye" finial, conical shade hanger,
and three lobed valve wheel on other models.
Neil McRae believes this Nagel-Chase lamp model
may have been made exclusively for a mail order company.
It seems to have the fount from a model 10
and the burner unit from a Model 11A or 15.
Don Colston cleaned this lamp up for his friend, "Dale the Polak,"
and found afterwards that the lamp ran very well.
The Model 15 Nagel-Chase lamp was sold by Montgomery Ward & Co.
and dubbed the "Superlight" in the 1926-27 and the 1927-28 catalogs.
The unfired lamp (left & center) is in Craig Seabrook's collection,
while the lamp on the right is in Fil Graff's collection.
The copper flange on the generator was supposed to help in preheating.
The shade on the right is marked Rock Brand
and varies in design from the shade in the center image
which is figured on this lamp in the literature.
Nagel-Chase made this Model 18 wall lamp
that appears in a 1925-26 brochure from that company (McRae).
The 300 cp gasoline lamp lacks feet which are usually present on wall lamps
so that it can sit on an horizontal surface,
but instead has a second wall attachment at the bottom of the fount.
This lamp is in Neil McRae's collection.
Nagle-Chase Mfg. Co. also made these hanging lamps -
Model 150 Dreadnaught Individual gasoline lamp (left & center)
and Model 38 Wizard Individual kerosene lamp (right).
which are in Neil McRae's collection.
The first lamp is 300 cp while the second is 300-400 cp.
The shade on the Model 38 is not original.
Both lamps have pressure gauges.
Nagel-Chase also made this No 192 inverted outside arc lamp.
It is listed in catalogs of that company from 1920-1930
and sold in the later years for $24.85.
A kerosene model, it was rated by the manufacturer at 600cp.
This lamp with the original globe is in Rolf Hübener's collection.
This unknown model arc lamp is marked
"Manufactured by National Stamping & Electric Works,"
a company that was located in Chicago, Illinois.
It is also marked "Nulite Lighting System."
This lamp, with a period petticoat shade and chimney,
is in Dick Sellers' collection.
This outdoor arc lamp is marked Nulite
Chicago Solar Light Company.
The consolidation of National Stamping & Elec. Works
and Chicago Solar Light Company
occurred in 1909-10 which helps to date this lamp
in Dick Sellers' collection.
This lamp was probably made by National Stamping & Electric Works, Chicago, Illinois
or possibly by the Solar Lamp Co that preceded them.
It has an overhead generator and dates to circa 1910.
This lamp is in Neil McRae's collection.
This Nulite table lamp by National Stamping & Electric Works
is similar to Model 110 that appears in their catalog No. 76
which we can date to 1916-18.
It is a torch lighting model with a pivoting door
to access the generator tip for cleaning with a pricker;
Model 110 had an automatic tip cleaner..
This lamp is in Neil McRae's collection.
This one mantle wall or bracket lamp is marked Nulite/Chicago
but we do not have a catalog that pictures this torch lighting model.
there is a tip cleaner at the top of the generator
which is not obvious in this image.
The air tube on this lamp, which is in Bruce Strauss's collection, is missing.
This Nulite outdoor bracket lamp may have been their Model 206,
based on a comparison with related Nulite model numbers,
according to Neil McRae, who owns the lamp.
The burner (right image) includes a tip cleaner above the generator tube.
The tank has an oxidized copper finish.
The lamp requires a separate pump.
Neil McRae believes this lamp
is an early version of Nulite Model 110M;
a later version figured in a catalog has the air tube supporting the burner.
The M designation in the model number means that it is match lighting,
according to Neil, unlike the torch lighting model above.
This lamp is in Wade Golden's collection.
National Stamping & Electric Works, Chicago,
made this Nulite 202M chandelier lamp.
This lamp has a 2 qt. fount
and produces 800 cp from the two, double mantle burners.
The Nulite 199 white embossed shades (upper images) are original to this lamp.
This lamp is in Dwayne Hanson's collection.
The Nulite M203 ceiling lamp
was a match lighting model that boasted 400 cp from two mantles.
The top of the fount has a filler cap and air screw for pressurizing the gas.
These lamps are in Dwayne Hanson's collection.
The 199 shade (right) is correct for this lamp.
The Nulite brand included this 207M bracket lamp circa 1920.
This lamp, in Dwayne Hanson's collection, is outfitted with the correct 199 shade.
The fount has a 1 quart capacity.
With the shade, pump, mantles, and other accessories, the lamp retailed for $13.80.
Two Nulite kerosene table lamps for Sears - Model 07705 (left)
in John Anderson's collection, and Model 07737 (right).
The lamps differ in the detail on the handles.
The finish is gone from the steel fount of the lamp on the right.
Model 07705 appears in Sears catalogs from the fall, 1936 through the spring, 1941
while 07737 follows from the fall, 1941 through the fall, 1942 (McRae).
National Stamping & Electric Works also made this
instant lighting lamp that can be compared to their lantern.
This lamp is missing the burner that was possibly the same
as on the above right lamp for Sears, Model 07737;
these models share the same tip cleaner assembly.
Please contact me if you find one of these lamps.
This early Nulite gasoline table lamp
was rated at 300 cp by the manufacturer
in their #69 catalogue.
This lamp, in John Carriere's collection,
is fitted here with a globe
rather than a shade as shown in the catalogue.
Two versions of the Model 10 Air-O-Lamp made by National Stamping and Electric Works, Chicago.
The Sunshine Safety Lamp Company in Kansas City, MO
badged the lamp on the left and center (running).
This lamp features the original artichoke shade
The lamp on the right is marked as made by the manufacturer,
Access to the filler plug and valve wheel on this model is artfully concealed
under the sliding bell-shaped cover above the fount.
These two lamps are in Neil McRae's collection.
