Vintage 1920s Dewar Mfg Co  Dew-R-Lite Carbide 6.5" Miners Mining Lantern Lamp w/Handle & Hook - Empty - Patent Date: Nov 2, 1926

This is a vintage 1926 Dewar Mfg Co Dew-R-Lite carbide miners lantern lamp designed to be carried or hung and fueled by carbide to produce light from the flame. While no longer functional as a light source, it makes for an excellent collectible piece of mining history.

Appears to be designed to be hung or held.

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

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

CONDITION NOTE: Used, but in Fair condition overall for its age. Not tested. The lantern has various nicks, dents, 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. The reflector is very bent up (and rotates since the screw cannot be tightened any further), but still looks cool since it shows it was a critical piece of mining history. 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!
