    Picked this little guy up a while back and not much done to it to get it up and back to work. Gives out a decent bit of light. Tiny mica globe I'd imagine is original to it? Definitely the smallest kero burner I have that's for sure. Needs a good cleaning but I'm not very good on cleaning. :D

    These are nice little lanterns.
    Be carefull with he needle, once broken you will not find replacement.

    Replacement needles seem to be a problem with most Ditmar lanterns. I can't find a replacement for my military one. A very nice lantern, I'd love to use it more.
