D R PATENT - TYPE 201 WITH 1912 HANDFEST GLOBE
This lantern was purchased in the Netherlands. The lantern had 2 heavy coats of old paint black paint on it. It was stripped of the old paint. Given the condition of the lantern, with the heavy pitting in some areas yet smooth nice tin in other areas, I have decided to leave it as is.
The 'HANDFEST 1912' Globe is not original to this lantern. Click here for more information on the 'HANDFEST GLOBE'.
The original burner works well. The original burner cone and burner 'plate' were very deteriorated. I have replaced a those two parts with the identical pieces from that came from another D R Patent.
There are 4 known different types of D R Patent models.
FROM JÖRG WEKENMANN :
The 'Patent Feuerhand' (logo in the circle) was applied for in 1913.
In 1914 the word mark 'FEUERHAND' was added.
The 'D.R. Patent Feuerhand 'came onto the market a little later. It can be found on advertising leaflets from Nier track until the early 1920s.
From the 'Patent Feuerhand' there was a 7 '' 'and a 5' '' linges model.
As for the 'D.R. Patent Feuerhand 'lanterns it gets a bit more complicated.
There were 5 different variants, which, for reference, are called type 1 - type 5.
Type 1 = D.R. Patent - 7 '' '- forerunner of No. 201
Type 2 = D.R. Patent - 5 '' '- Forerunner of No. 202
Type 3 = D.R. Patent - 7 '' '- forerunner of No. 205
Type 4 = D.R. Patent - Carbide Lantern - Forerunner of No. 301
Type 5 = D.R. Patent - 7 '' '- forerunner of No. 251
