Vintage 1910s Lamp Dewar Mfg Co Carbide 6.5" Miners Mining Lantern Lamp w/Handle & Hook - Some Silver Color - Empty - Patented July 29, 1913

Up for sale is a vintage Circa 1913 Dewar Manufacturing Company carbide miners lamp. The lamp is marked "Patented July 29, 1913" and "Dewar Mfg Co" on the top edge of the base that would unscrew.  It features a ribbed carbide reservoir at the bottom, a water tank in the middle, and a reflector shade on the front to direct the light beam.

While showing signs of age and use as an authentic miners lamp from over a century ago, it remains an excellent piece of vintage mining memorabilia and industrial history.

Appears to be designed to be hung or held.

Approx. Dimensions: 6-1/2" T x 3-1/8" W x 5" D w/3" Reflector

Sold as is. No warranty from the seller. No Returns.

CONDITION NOTE: Used, but in Good condition overall for its age. Not tested. The lantern has various nicks, dents, rust, scratches with some surface corrosion (on the reflector) and dust/dirt (see pictures). The unit could not be unscrewed to see inside the container, and I did not want to force it. Does not include the original box and does not include any user documentation. Please see all detailed images of this listing to know what you are purchasing!
