FEUERHAND Nr. 260/280 Colored glass globes including very rare Orange and Amber globes

All of the globes you see above came from Väse, Sweden. The globes were in a 'hardware store' built in the 1800's and it was closing down. In 2010, there were only about 494 folks who lived there. The school of thought is that these were NOS left over from WW2 that were not destroyed during the war.


The purpose of the orange/amber colored globes for the FH260/280 in the USA were for Rail Road purposes. In Germany / Europe for road construction marker lights. Especially in Germany during the time frame of the 1930's the orange globes (not amber) were required for constructions at rail road crossings. Amber or clear globes were required for the illumination of road traffic signs. *

The beautiful assortment of Feuerhand Globes below are in the possession of another private collector in Germany.  With the owners permission, I have posted these photos so you can see how splendid the rare colored globes of Feuerhand are.  The collection below shows the devotion and tenacity of the owner.

  Enjoy these rare globes!



PLEASE NOTE: One of the most common globe requests that I receive is if I have any FH260/280 Globes for sale. At this time, I do not. You can use a Dietz #850 D-Lite globe as a temporary replacement until you find the proper embossed globe.

    Hello Ed,

    The only place to find the original colored globes for the 175/276 Feuerhand lanterns are usually on German Ebay. Very rarely do I see them for sale here in the USA.

    Hello David,

    An embossed proper FH270 is extremely difficult to find. You would have to hunt on German Ebay for it. If you do find one, I've seem them sell near the $100.00 range. I have one of the Dietz Little Wizard globes that was original to the lantern when it was imported from Germany to the USA. Your option is to use the globe you have provided it is not cracked or you can contact me if you wish to purchase the Little Wizard Globe I have. Use the main contact form if you wish to pursue this.

    I have a sweet little feuerhand nr.270. In order to keep it original, I need a proper globe. There are no markings on the present globe. I am pretty sure I can repair it but this globe is nothing special, ( I don't think). Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Patrick,

    Those are very difficult to find nowadays. If you do find one in Germany, it will cost a fair amount of money. The globe for the FH175 is in high demand. You would need to hunt for one. All of mine are sitting in their proper lantern and I do not have any extra FH175 globes.

    Hi Michael,

    I only have a very blurry image above in the photo gallery of a green FH 276 Globe. I've never actually seen one. It was very rare to come up with the Amber globe for the FH276; incredibly rare.

    The green globe was more for a 'Party Light' globe. As a German friend of mine once said,
    "even our grandparents had to party'. In Switzerland, a rare Green Helvetia globe indicated a Doctor was present in the building and/or bunker during war time.
