Kaestner & Toebelmann PANZER-STURMTROTZ' - "LA CUIRASSEE"

"The lighthouse won't go out"

 

This is a lantern from Kaestner & Toebelmann from Erfurt - 'LA CUIRASSEE'.
The burner needed repairing, but overall the lantern was in amazing condition after the rust was removed and the lantern restored.  When fired up, it gives off a steady and bright light. 

 

Note the 'bump; snorkel' on the top.  There are no vent holes in the bottom of the fuel tank as you see with other pre-1913 K & T lanterns. 

 

Circa:  After 1913
