Hello Doron, it's good to find an unused lantern.
In the UK., this lantern is sold under the brand name of Anchor and many other brand names are used as well.
I reckon that the folk who make them use a different name every week.
I did have two Anchor lanterns, but I had to scrap them last year, there is so much salt in the air in Shetland that the tanks and cages and hoods were more rust than metal.
I saved all of the parts which were in good condition though.
Anchor lanterns can be found locally here new as well.
last week at visit to the flee market I saw at least 50 of those anchors new.
prices range between $55~$70 depending on the seller
Hello Doron, those Chinese lanterns work okay once they have been set properly and they would last longer in a dry and salt free place.
I have a Red Heart and will never rust out .
The whole lot is made of brass.
checked with magnet fount and vent etc .
Nice find Doron !
BTW: Is the rule "red knobs = steel, blue knobs = brass" still applicable?
I have a Red Heart here " Down Under", It has red knobs and is all brass.
Separate names with a comma.
