Well I bought 1/2 of Camel Skin Lamp, In first photo I am holding flashlight inside. there is plug in lamp for bulb. Plug in says SHAZAD from where??? and on other side of plug is 5AM25V I guess this must be changed to fit our system. I do not know how old this lamp is but it is hand painted and I like it. I will have to invent a top or maybe I can find a top online from Pakistan, (I read that is where most of these come from). Thanks for looking!! toracat

    Hello, are you talking about the plug, or lamp? The plug is round like Europe.

    I have bought a number of those adapters to fit with these type lamps and they seem to work good, a lot of times will take a western bulb in it like we use.

    Thanks, I will check it out, I think it is European plug? I was in Western Sahara, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia, back in 1972, backing for 8 months and do not remember the plugs!

    Item # 400305020769 on ebay is one that is very cheap, I think they even pay for the shipping, but there are others. I bought some last year when I was buying some European lamps from England. Took me a minute to figure a couple of them out but not hard at all really. I bought about 4 or 5 of them and may need a couple others.
