    Excellent lantern, Darryl!

    Make sure you get good photos of the label.

    It will be great to see this well illustrated in the Reference Gallery.

    Cheers

    I don’t recall ever seeing a Radiant Star transfer like that one (I’ll have to check). I note it appears to have a reference to Pennant Kerosene.

    The Handi glass fits a few of the Glorias and this “Son of Gloria”. The original globes were straight sided 114mm high by 103mm Outside Diameter - a dimension extremely difficult to get hold of.

    Cheers

    Tony

    Good on you Darryl! It took me three years to find my first one in the wild
    I am very interested in that label so looking forward to a close up of it . You’ll be amazed how loud and bright they run !
    These have an interesting past Check out Neils sight for the history lesson !
    Again Well done !

    I’d say it’s:

    Collins Bros
    Radiant Star
    Kerosine Lantern
    Clarence St Sydney
    Use Pennant Kerosine


    Cheers
