  Justrite Big J Marking.JPG - BIG J MARKED BASE - Brass superintendent-style lamp with hook and butterfly handles, 2 5/8 in. reflector, marked on side JUSTRITE PAT. MAY 7, 1912 PAT. OCT. 28, 1913 PAT. NOV. 23, 1915 OTHERS PENDING, with LIBERTY TRADEMARK water control and oval water door, with reinforced ribbed bottom and rare big J Justrite marking, Justrite model No. 100, excellent condition, acquired from my very good Alaskan friend Neil Tysver [Justrite introduced the Liberty Feed marked water control in 1919.  The production of Liberty Feed lamps was short lived and they were no longer being advertised by 1922 pretty much corresponding to the departure of noted Justrite designer Augie Hansen in 1920 and his replacement with William Frisbie.  The model No. 100 superintendent-style lamp was first offered with a Liberty Feed valve in Justrite Catalogue No. 3 issued in May 1919.  It was only offered in nickel plate.  Justrite Catalogue No. 4 issued in December 1923 offers the No. 100 lamp with a wire feed and only in nickel plate.  The brass version of this lamp is thought to be very rare.  Justrite also introduced a new ribbed reinforced bottom in this same timeframe.  This resulted in two rare base markings on these bottoms, one marked with a Justrite scroll banner and the other with a big J in Justrite stamping.  The lamp shown here has the big J Justrite marking.  The Justrite scroll banner marking is shown on the bottom of a rubber gasket water door cap lamp model No. 907 in my carbide cap lamp pics.
