FEUERHAND (FIREHAND) Nr. 260. First Export to the USA. Has embossed Red Feuerhand globe

FEUERHAND Nr. 260 with badge 'FIREHAND'


This lantern was found in Canada and came to me covered in silver paint. As in most cases with Feuerhand lanterns, underneath the paint was a solid lantern. The badge, which is embossed 'FIREHAND' does have some pitting.  The canopy on the chimney was in rough shape and it was difficult to straighten it.   This came with a clear Embossed Feuerhand globe.


*UPDATE: I was able to locate a very hard to find Red Feuerhand embossed globe for this FH 260. The red globe came from Sweden with the assistance of another fellow collector. A true find!


The first exported models of Feuerhand has this style badge and spelling. Note the photo in the gallery of the later version with the badge and the spelling 'FEUERHAND'.


The trademark 'Fire Hand' was registered in 1924, the trademark 'Feuerhand' in the banner in 1939.


CIRCA: Mid 1920's

    Hello Al,

    I use Mr. Muscle Oven cleaner for almost all of my paint stripping on lanterns. Sometimes I do use Citri-Strip, but I find the Oven cleaner works the best. Feel free to use the main contact form and then we can chat about it in further detail.

    I have a Nr. 260 Feuerhand Made in Germany with the badge Feuerhand made in Germany with the original clear globe, but the handle appears not to original. Mine is looks to be painted black, I was just wondering what you used to remove the silver paint, I would like to get back to the original look. Thanks Al Braun
