This is a wonderful Justrite carbide mining lantern in good clean condition with all the interior parts intact, made of all brass body with steel handles and hanger and chrome plated reflector. This lantern can be used as handheld or hanging, the large hook at the top is used for hanging the lantern and has a very sharp end for sticking it into a wood beam in the mining tunnels. The reflector on this lantern is 4” diameter.
The heyday of this type of light was from the turn of the century to the 1930’s. These were used in the coal mines for years. Lantern is marked on top (Justrite, United States of America).
