D R Patent model - Type Nr. 201 with 'Big Logo' Globe
This lantern was purchased in the UK. The lantern had 2 heavy coats of old paint on it; Black and then underneath the black was purple. It was stripped of the old paint and repainted again.
The original burner has a broken burner (currently being repaired). I have placed a Feuerhand Nr. 201 Burner in this lantern as it fits perfectly. This lantern is identical to the Nr. 201.
This particular model was the last model of D R Patent made before it then became the Feuerhand Nr. 201. This is indicated by the burner it has. 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
The globe that came originally with the lantern is the globe that is from approximately 1929. It now has a older globe which is dated from approximately 1926. Notice the difference in the wreath around the Logo.
Overall condition of the lantern underneath the paint was excellent.
Circa: Approximately 1924- 1926
