ANTIQUE Dietz Kerosene Lantern, USA, Early1900s
This is an antique kerosene oil lamp or hurricane lantern, made by Dietz in the early 20th century. New York, USA. (On the globe it says Paull S. Leader in raised letters) . It has a wick but I have not put any oil in it, so I don't know if it leaks or not. It's rusty but in fairly good shape otherwise. Measures approximately 13" tall, not including the handle. It is 7 1/2" wide. (It has a cork instead of a screw-on lid.) I think the bottom has been repaired. It was an estate sale find. Would be a great decorative item for any collector.
1909---??? At least early 1900s.
