Little story about the Paterson A1 from John Harvey:
„Some things money cannot buy Just a very plain old Patterson A 1. BUT I was brought up in the 1940,s in Durham a mining family, two pitmen Tommy and Joe both on different shifts, So tin bath in front of the fire twice daily, and pit clothes hanging in front of the fire to dry ready for the next shift. I can still smell them. Well both Tommy and Joe had allotments with old greenhouses, and Tommy “borrowed” two old lamps from The Rainton Meadows. In about 1940. The purpose of theses was to put in the greenhouse lit to keep out the frost. Well Tommy had worked in The Meadows all his life apart from a short five year holiday in The Royal Artillery WW1. So after his death I recovered both lamps. The Patterson B7 I gave to my daughter, the AI stays by my fireplace. Money could not buy it.“
Es handelt sich um eine typische Baxendale-Lampe, die mit einem Smith-Mantel ausgestattet ist. Baxendale hat nicht so viele verschiedene Modelle gebaut. Obwohl diese Lampe sehr beliebt war, ist der Smith-Mantel nicht so häufig zu finden.
Gary Chedgy: It's a typical Pattterson patent Baxendale lamp but featuring Smith's patent bonnet. Baxendale didn't make that many different lamps but this was there most popular it's just you don't often see it with the Smith's bonnet.
