Ok

What i found out:
Company still exsists: F.F.A Schulze: Wir bringen Ihre Armaturen in Bewegung ! after the Worldwar only the factory in Hamburg had this name the factory in Belrin went to the Russians after the war.
The lamp itself seems to be a bestseller(Reichsbahn, Wehrmacht, Reichsmarine / Railway, army, navy). Found very old ones from 1927 like this http://www.pelam.de/petromaxforum/attachment.php?attachmentid=16631&sid=f4d2afbff0d4320bc98cad5e45d560c3
some have elecric power like this RARE Electric Lamp LANTERN 1936 Schulze Berlin NR (might be fake).

1935 year of production
FFA Schulze companies name
D.R.P 395351 Deutsches Reichspatent (patent no.)


Hope this helps
