This vintage galvanized German made oil burning lantern has a nice weathered look, but no rusting through! It was made by “Ahlemann and Schlatter Bremen”. Most of the housing has surface rust and has been clear coated. The main housing is made from galvanized iron and the top vent cover is made from copper. As shown in the photo to the left, this lantern is 17 inches tall with the top handle in the down position. The fresnel glass lens is in very good condition, but could use some additional cleaning! Not 100% sure, but I would call this a 145 degree lens. This is a flat back housing with the back side being 7 1/2 inches wide. From the curved front of the lantern to the flat back, it looks to measure about 7 1/2 inches. This German made oil burning lantern weighs just over 8 pounds.
The back side of this lantern has a door that gives easy access to the oil burner. The burner assembly looks complete, but it has not been tested for working condition or leaks, and will need some cleaning if you really want to light it up. The oil burner will need a new wick. The back access door has a slight bend in it, and as you can see in the additional photos, it has a small gap at the bottom when closed.
This is an original German made oil burning lantern that was recovered from a salvage yard operation. This lantern may have some minor dents, dings, and scrapes that are not totally visible in the attached photos. The housing does not show any signs of rusting through.
