One Good 'ol Dietz Lantern. Used extensively, back in the day, by railroaders, contractors of public works, marine, navy and fire departments. And the occasional farmer on his way to the barn.

This one is a Dietz Hy-Lo (high performance/low price) and was made in New York, USA. sometime between 1937 - 1956 (indicated by the H 10 code on the globe).

The globes for these kerosene lanterns came in a variety of colors, with each color designating a particular application. The clear/white globes were used by the Fire Department for general illumination, by the Marines/Navy for Anchor, Mast and Running Lights, and by the Railroad/Highway for hand signals.

Embossed Marks:
On the base, Dietz Hy-Lo and New York U.S.A.
On the globe, DIETZ FITZALL, N.Y., U.S.A and H 10, LOC - NOB, PATD 12-4-23
On the metal piece above the globe, DIETZ

Condition:
The glass globe is original and lifts & drops properly, the filler cap lid opens, the wick adjustment knob moves but needs new wick, the carrying handle adjusts up and down. Looks like everything works, but I did not fire it up and test it in action! The entire metal portion of the lantern has that wonderful patina of surface rust.

Dimensions:
7.5" at widest point
13.5" tall
19" tall when handle is locked in the up position
