This is a Vintage Kilbourn-Sauer Green Fresnel Glass Oil Lantern – likely from the 1930’s to 1940’s. We’ve left the original oil-burning components inside but we have not tested it for functionality. On top of the lantern is the mark ” Kilborn-Sauer Co. Fairfield, Conn, U.S.A”.
There are a few cracks in the glass.
This lantern is a mixture of galvanized steel and brass. A great piece to add to your nautical collection.
This item is being sold on consignment for a private collector from Cleveland. Every item has been well-preserved due to the owner’s deep love of nautical history. You’ll find some very interesting pieces in this collection – items that might not be found anywhere on the Internet!
