FEUERHAND Nr. 260
This lantern came to me with an interesting history. It had been stored away in a barn near Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia. The elderly owner at that time was serving up Lobster's at Joe's Best Lobster shack. He indicated it had been in that barn for "30 to 40" years. It now has a permanent home in my collection.
I would like to give a big 'shout out' to the Canadian couple who made this acquisition possible. Ric and Sandra run their own Etsy shop and I would recommend you check out their wonderful items for
sale. Top notch sellers! https://www.etsy.com/shop/RicsRelics?ref=profile_shopicon
Underneath the rust was an absolutely pristine Feuerhand. Not a single pinhole or flaw. The quality is undeniable with this lantern. The clear embossed globe is most likely original as it has many bubbles present in the glass as opposed to the embossed globes in my other Feuerhand Nr. 260's which were exports.
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!
