Antique DIETZ Hot Blast LANTERN from the late 1800s - FRESH from a Pennsylvania FARM ESTATE. Extremely RARE model called a ROYAL DASH LAMP - a similar later lantern was named the Buckeye No. Features an interior Magnifying Lens to concentrate light beam ahead. Back reflector panel stamped "ROYAL DASH LAMP" and has a broad Spring Clip to hold the lantern on the dashboard of a carriage or wagon (see photos).
Font stamped DIETZ - NEW YORK U. Clear glass globe with no markings. Fuel Cap, Globe and Burner all present and seem intact - wick knob turns but I'm not forcing it. Bottom of font shows a possible old hole repair - not fuel tested.
