Soo i came across this at an online auction the other day. The auction ended today and I won this beauty!!!

The only info I can find on this lantern is from Terrys site. I don't believe anyone's ever made a post about it.

It's not in my possession yet. But hopefully next week.

I had one of the lamps. It went home to Winnipeg though.

I was familiar with the lamps, the riveted bottom always caught my eye. Didn't know about the lantern until I seen Terrys site. Very happy to have this piece!

I think Brave Brave Sir Robin wore that lantern as his helmet in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"...

Excellent score on rare bear! Congrats!

Thanks a lot everyone! Hopefully I will have it next week and possibly get it lit up!!

I would love to see another example as they seem to be none-existent. Or at least near impossible.

These are a rare thing. I know Terry Marsh has one and I have a good set of images but I was not aware of any others. We don't have model numbers for any Powerlight product. The company is an odd one. Originally Pitner Lighting Co.,  then Lighting Systems Ltd. and finally Powerlight Co. Ltd. The two earlier companies were owned by The Pitner Gasoline Lighting Co of Chicago.  I have always thought it odd that they mostly used Nagel Chase founts and either a Canadian made modified Pitner or the Powerlight burner on the table lamp above. I guess the reason was the demise of Pitner Chicago in 1916 meant they had to either use old Pitner burner stocks or make their own burners and went to another Chicago company for the founts.  The one exception is we have found one table lamp with a Perfection fount marked as Powerlight. The company only exsited as Powerlight from 1916 to 1920 so we can give a pretty tight date to all the marked product. ::Neil::

Dylan, you have one rare and odd bird right there. 

I notice Neil gave you a bit of background on these also. Good to keep with that lantern I'd say. 

Hold tight to that one and I would not use Herculean efforts to get it running. Keeping it as is may be the best course of action but hey - it's yours, do what you will with it.

It should restore to function OK. Those NC founts are pretty solid and the rest is pretty simple. A good clean out and check of the seals should be enough.

That was just a brief note on the company. There is a lot more on the history in the PLC.

Hey Neil!

I knew someone here would have more knowledge on this oddball!

I also got some great info from Andrew in Australia.. He had some pictures of a collectors write up on the three companies and seen that they never had model numbers for any of the lamps or lanterns. Witch is to bad, but it being a company for only 4 years about 100 years ago, it makes sense.

So Terry is the only collector known to own one? I did post about this piece on the Facebook group, and was shown an image someone had of the vent of one.. They said they  only held it, but never said who owner or where.

I love the fact this lantern was produced only 4hrs away from me! I've been messaged a lot of FB about this piece to trade, but i am going to hold it for sure, and will go about getting it in running condition. I will be taking my time.. 

I can't wait to get my hands on it!! 😃

Thank you very much Neil!!! I greatly appreciate the knowledge on the oddball!

I forgot to post these back in March.. running on all original parts. One rivet leaks a bit, witch could be plugged. but it still runs amazing for 100* years old!

I used a 427 Fred Kuntz Mica so the original can stay "intact" - Dylan

Those riveted founts are unique to pretty well all Nagel Chase lamps and lanterns up to 1919. Always seemed odd to me that with the connection to Pitner they used another manufacturers fount. ::Neil::
