Small oil lamp from famous German company Feuerhand. The model 175F made in the 1930’s. This model has a bracket for mounting on a bicycle. This bracket is equipped with a spring that act as a shock absorber to avoid damaging of the lamp. Also horse drawn wagons for farming and transport of milk from the farms to the dairy factory used these kind of oil lanterns. The F is from the German word Fahrrad meaning bicycle The lantern dates back to approximately 1934-1939. Given the fact that the lamp have the marking Made in Germany and not Made in W. Germany this is from during or before WW2.
The lamp is a bit rusty but still functional. Most of the original paint is still there. Unfortunately the lamp is ”sweating” kerosene to the outside of the lamp.
