Rare Vintage Dietz Vesta M. Army Railroad Lantern with Matching Globe. Up for sale is this vintage M. Army Railroad lantern made by Dietz Vesta. Apparently this lantern is very rare as I can find nothing like it anywhere.The top of the lantern is embossed DIETZ VESTA NEW YORK U. There are a series of patent dates engraved into the top lid: 1920, 27, 28(2) and 1935 although a little hard to read. The clear glass globe is a matching Dietz Vesta globe and is also etched with the matching M. The burner font is only accessible by removing it with the wick turner from the bottom of the lantern. The condition of the lantern is overall good with some minor rust.
The wire bottom has a couple of bends. The glass globe is in very good condition with some slight roughness on the fitters. Don't miss out on this rare lantern.Thank you for considering our items.
