Marla von Martin Müller.

The MARLA lamp is an inverted spiritus or alcohol lamp. The vapor pressure needed to run well is provided by the inverted design and the increasing vapor pressure of the vaporizing spiritus.

It is a simple but good working design going back in time around 1910-1930. The Lauterbach brothers, Eduard the merchant and Josef the engineer, started the developement (?) of the lamp. Somewhere in time the company name was changed from Gebr. Lauterbach (1910) in in MARLA GmbH.

I found two patents in 2005 of the brothers: one in the UK: GB191001113A dating back to 1910 and an Austrian patent: AT 47819B also from 1910.
You can find these patents here:
