This is a matching pair of Bennett 541's with original 4 foot station lighters. The porcelain shades have been professionally restored. The doors have yet to be painted and it will be done in Richfield colors with the 22 inch flying eagle on the doors. All automotive base coat/clear coat cut and buffed.

I bought these pumps 12 years ago on eBay. I picked them up in Sebastapol, Ca. The seller said they came from Mt. Shasta Lodge.

Now that I am retired, I have finally decided to finish them. The pumps have been removed and frame and panels have all been sand blasted, and coated with epoxy primer.

I consider these to be fairly rare and have decided to put a $12,000 dollar price on them delivered anywhere in the United States for mileage costs. If this seems an out of whack price, I welcome all comments. [img]http://[/img] [img:center]http://[/img]

I bought these pumps 12 years ago on eBay and picked them up in Sebastapol, Ca. The owner said they came from Shasta Lodge.

Now that I am retired, I have decided to restore them in Richfield blue and yellow. Automotive base coat/clear coat and cut and buffed.

These are matching pumps with original 4 foot station lighters. The porcelain shades have been professionally restored.

I think that because of the rarity of the pumps with station lighters, these should be worth $12,000. Please let me know if this is out of whack pricing. All comments are welcome.

I will personally deliver and set up anywhere in the continental U.S. for expenses. These are 11 feet tall and require personal handling.

Thanks to all with the positive comments. Apparently my price isn't beyond reason?

Here is my guess, $1500-$2000 each for unfinished pumps and $600-$1000 each for the station lighters. Also keep in mind that the harps and bonnets are not correct Bennett parts. They appear to be revere units. Any one else have an opinion feel free to add.

Sorry to hear that the shades are not original. That is not what my seller told me. I DO like these better that the "China hats" that I have seen in Jack's book.

They do look nice. The Tokhiem 36B station lighter uses that style harp and bonnet. The harp is a little different but same style.
