H. M. Edwards Of Wakefield Bonneted Clanny Safety Lamp:
This miners safety lamp was made H. M. Edwards, Cardigan Works, Wakefield, Yorkshire, England. This model was firstly built as an open Clanny lamp; the dome above the gauze still has the hole for the eye. It was then equipped with a removable locked Marsaut bonnet. This is obviously a factory-made addition, because another identical made example is known (see David Barrie, The Wand of Science, p. 80). The lamp has a cylindrical single gauze and two screw locks (one for the bottom and one for the removable bonnet). It stands 24.1 cm (9.5 ins.) high, has a diameter of 8.6 cm (3.4 ins.) and is in good used condition with some shallow dents and some rust-pitting on the bonnet; only the gauze is damaged on top (I couldn’t take a picture of this, because it’s a little brittle and so I didn’t dare to take it out).
