Old Carbide Bicycle Lamp - Riemann, with Original Bracket

This vintage carbide bicycle lamp is a Riemann. The name is in on the dome over the burner and faintly etched on the original convex glass lens which is a real bonus. Also on the lens is the Riemann oak leaf logo. Behind the bracket is the oak leaf logo. The bracket is marked No.66. I do not know if this is the model number for the lamp or for bracket. Other than that there is no information regarding country of origin or patent information but I assume it is from Germany from the early 1900's. The whole lamp is nickeled and appears to be complete and all original including the lens as previously mentioned which is held in by a spring wire. The lens door is hinged on the left and clips closed on the right. It has its original burner inside. The drip adjustment is on the top next to the reservoir cap.

It measures about 6 3/4" tall and it measures about 3 3/4" across the flange of the lens. The nickel is in good condition with minor wear and the body is good with minimal dents. The spring on the bracket is also good. Email for more pictures and close-ups.
