Can Anyone Identify this Clanny Type Miners' Safety Lamp?

Can anyone help me identify the maker of the above Clanny lamp? There are no obvious signs of a maker's name or mark on it.  This lamp is a bout an inch taller than most Clannys. It still retains its original hand stitched copper gauze. It has been suggested by a couple of collectors that it may be an American lamp but others say that it is of English origin. Any information about this lamp would be appreciated.

Based on the fact I have seen a very similar lamp in another collection I believe this lamp to be a  John Evans of Birmingham Clanny. If it is an Evans lamp that would date it to 1877 to 1882, these being the dates when this manufacturer was active.
