FEUERHAND 'D R PATENT' 1924 precursor to the Feuerhand Nr. 201*Big Logo Feuerhand Globe

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.




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
