Dietz Hy-Lo Kerosene lantern with clear Fitzall globe - vintage 1930s
Vintage 1930s Dietz Hy-Lo kerosene lantern with a clear Fitzall globe. Black antique lantern from the 1930s or perhaps before (Dietz made this lantern from 1912 to 1947 according to this awesome site that is full of lantern info). Stamped Dietz Hy-Lo and New York USA.
Black Dietz lantern has a history we are lucky enough to know because we met the owner. Lantern was used by her father during his WWII days as a blackout warden. Lantern was passed down and used by the family for camping adventures.
SIZE 13.5", not including handle
CONDITION Perfectly patina, exactly as found. Not a single shred bit of cleaning other than to a slight dusting was done because the globe is smoked so perfectly it looks like we did it for theatrical reasons. Name of previous owner is on bottom in Sharpie.
This is a vintage item. It has been used and loved and it has a history. Please examine photos carefully and ask questions, as we are unable to accept returns or exchanges.
