This lantern came to me almost as you see it now and is fully functional.  Given the condition of this lantern, I believe it has been indoors all of its' life.  No rust was present.


Thanks to the eagle eye of H. Kloosterman, he informed that "the outer chimney top has the rim with holes in an angle of 45 degrees which is the oldest type of the Feurhand Nr. 275. Later,  this rim is horizontal."


I polished the lantern with Blue Magic Metal Polish Creme to bring out the richer color of the patina as it had aged so beautifully.   The rare marked cobalt blue globe is in pristine condition. 


Circa 1930
