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
