Rowe Brothers and Co Ltd, manufactured a wide range of sheetmetal products. Trading as The Rowe Group today. An interesting point is that the Rowe and Clarington lamps share identical metal work, construction and lenses. The only difference being that the Rowe has the external lens collars which pre-date the type fitted to the Clarrington. It would seem that sharing sheet metal sub-contractors was common practice by lamp manufacturers as identical components parts can be found on rival products. Alternatively a supplier might of had lamps manufactured to their specification by a sub-contractor who would then "brand" them with a trade name. http://roaddangerlamps.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=49104784 49104784 Clarrington Lamp Some early lamps are of a taller, slightly narrower design than latter types, typified by this "Clarrington Lamp".

The lower half is of the same design (including the lenses and burner assembly) as later Chalwyns with the BS 3143 stamp. The door features the Kenyon catch assembly. The top cowl has three lenses also similar to a Kenyon lamp. It is stamped SUPREME and M&HCHD (M&H City or County Highway Department?) http://roaddangerlamps.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=144813752 144813752 Supreme An interesting hybrid of various design features.

These have a number of interesting featues such as an upward sliding access door, easily replaced lenses, held in by wire clips and an orange paint finish, rather than red. This one is in original and unfired condition. However due to poor storage the upper surfaces have rusted. Careful study of the outer surface will reveal white overspray from the lens collars, over the orange paint, giving a clue as to how and when these were paiinted as part of the production process. The interior is painted white in order to reflect the burner flame. http://roaddangerlamps.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=147020023 147020023 Veritas View of the rear access door and burner. http://roaddangerlamps.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=147020024 147020024 Veritas Detail showing the lenses held in with wire clips. http://roaddangerlamps.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=147020025 147020025 Dorman Smith Possibly the last known type of paraffin fuelled lamp to be manufactured in quantity, this Dorman Smith dispensed with the traditional full width curved top and instead relied upon the inner cowl to attach the hook, in an effort to reduce costs. Sadly the construction is not too good with the door fixed at an odd angle. Dorman Smith plastic coated their lamps, rather than using paint. Unfortunately once the plastic coating is damaged, water ingress leads to rapid rusting causing the coating to flake off. A plate is pop rivetted to the door and is marked "SWEB" - South Western Electricity Board, The door is also stamped "PARKER". http://roaddangerlamps.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=51885786 51885786 Dorman Smith Possibly the last known type of paraffin fuelled lamp to be manufactured in quantity, this Dorman Smith dispensed with the traditional full width curved top and instead relied upon the inner cowl to attach the hook, in an effort to reduce costs.
