It's a big lamp that looks like a lighthouse I think.

Re: oldam lamps

Sounds like a Type S.
These have a screw-on bottom which is locked in place by a magnetic latch, and a special type jig was obtainable to release the latch & wind open the bottom plate. The position of the latch is identified by an oval boss on the side.

Upload to something like Photobucket or filesmelt, then copy the DIRECT LINK (or the that just appears on filesmelt) and when you to go make a new post, go advanced at click the little picture icon (with the mountains) and paste in the link, click OK and you're good to go :D

bosh a photo up and I might be able to help, I've taken a few apart in the past. They are spark proof hence the complicated fastnings.
