Vintage 1930/40s Acme Manufacturing 6" Miners Mining Lantern Lamp w/3" Reflector - Silver/Chrome Color - w/Dolygon Feed dated 2-21-22 - Empty

 

This is an original vintage Acme miners lantern lamp in silver/chrome color. It features a 3 inch reflector and measures approximately 6 inches tall. It was manufactured by the Acme Manufacturing Company, which made high quality lanterns for miners from the late 1800s through the mid 1900s. These durable lanterns were essential equipment for miners working underground.

 

The lamp burns carbide, which produces a bright white light safe for use around explosive gases. It has an adjustable valve to control the rate of gas flow. The font holds water that drips down to react with the carbide in the burner, releasing acetylene gas that is lit by a spark when the valve is opened.

 

This classic design is still popular with collectors today. It displays nicely and preserves an interesting piece of history.

 

Approx. Dimensions: 6" T (at the handle) x 2-7/8" W x 5" D w/3" Reflector
