Picked this one up from @Lantern Junkie thanks Ernie, definitely a cool one. All I did was wipe it down and fuel it up.

Sweet!  Are you able to make out the date on it?

I've got one very much like that made by the Star Head Lite and Lantern Co.  I fool around with the wick lanterns a bit, too.  I really like the hot blasts though I can't explain why.

No Jim, I've searched where I expected them to be (center tube) and see nothing obvious.. not very rusty in that area but some paint. I'll try to look into more, just have been very busy lately.

Steve, the hot blasts have a good look to them, but seem to be a bit dirtier burning.. At least in my experience ðŸ˜ I'm not an expert on these wickies at all, I just buy what I like usually.

That’s all I need to complete the average look of lanterns. I’ve got a whole lot of different barn lanterns and railroad lanterns. My favorite being the buggy lanterns but I don’t have one of these.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,
if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

Looks great, Toby! Nice to see one fired up. I’m doing a little cleaning to mine before I fuel and fire it.

Yours is an earlier version having the rounded carry handle and recessed fuel cap. Good score!

Lifted these off the Google. Thought the old ads were pretty neat and the sales ad seems to fit the time period of yours. I didn't realize ACME referred to the style/type of burner.

$23/doz. back in 1909 puts them around 50 bucks a piece in today's money!

I always liked the inspector lanterns but never got hooked up with one.  That's a nice looking example Toby!

I got this one a couple of Sundays ago.   This was at a TOO yardsale and I landed this - an electric conversion, but its not staying that way - I just "won" a replacement "Queen Ann" #2 burner off of Eprey:

TOO Lamp w-Mirror 1.jpg 


I hadn't even seen the Electrified Kero lamp glass - I saw the mirror sort of from the back. I recognize the Parabolic Mercury Mirror from seeing them occasionally in one of my "unrelated" Eprey searches, and while I had watched any number of them, I'd never pulled the trigger, despite interest, as they wanted more than I was willing to give for something to experiment with...

TOO Lamp w-Mirror 2.jpg 


Lots of other "collectibles" about so I'm wondering what they will want... - I get around the table and realize its the mirror AND the lamp holder tangled in the wire, AND the wall bracket is there, AND, belatedly, that the glass bowl is correct for the wall bracket basket!

The lady had gone inside. A man was doing yard work some distance away... Finally after looking twice, the guy comes over and I asked the fateful question. - he needs to see it as he wasn't sure what I'm talking about. He says "Well what do you want to give?" I hesitate (I hate setting prices...) and he asks if $2 is OK. I stammer out "Sure!", and try not to do damage getting the wallet out - (I have to un-glove one hand, get it out, open it, peel out 2 bucks... )

I collect all the bits including two semi circular wires with it that I don't know what they are for, and head on. The wires are in the pic, and fit the glass Kero fount perfectly, but no clear indicator how they attach to anything?

In any case it'd soon to be complete again I will need to either close a hole in the fill cap (A hole was poked to run the wire...) or find a replacement cap.  but as soon as next week it can get fired up again.  I'm pretty sure I have a chimney to fit it...
