    This is a Sears Junior lantern, Preway model L14A and Sears catalogue No 7439 but marked on the label as L14A. Not in the best of condition but still works well enough. The catalogue does not give the power rating but says 10 hours burning and given the tank size I guess this means about 200cp. ::Neil::

    I have two of these lanterns; a Sears and a Prentis-Wabers. I have one running on Kerosene / paraffin and it runs quite well.

    It gives a decent light and the filler cap is distinctive. Neat lantern! :thumbup:
