A real monster! Heavy as hell. Had a McKey glass with a small lighting hole.
They certainly are ! A sturdy branch and strong chain needed to hang this lantern from a tree at camp.
That's an unusual looking lamp, nice!
The Brown Bomber!
That one looks prime with pristine paint and vent. Me envious! Me want!
An impressive lantern. Do you have any idea who the manufacturer was? I’ll keep looking but haven’t found it in the PLC yet.
I believe these were made by Preway (Prentiss-Wabbers)?
This thing is bomb proof! It's the heaviest lantern I have in my collection. Loaded with fuel you would probably need two good hands and a strong back!
I’ll keep looking in the PLC! Is it a bright light or long running?
Yes, it's Prentiss Wabers. They made pretty much all of the early Sears Roebuck stuff. Down the page a bit--

@Henry Plews Henry, you would have to find a redwood tree to hang this thing! You take this with you when you go to "barbell camp"! lol
@MikeO Thanks, Mike!
Thanks for the information. I did eventually find it listed in the PLC as I knew it must be. I just need to refine my searching techniques.
Very nice mate, very nice.
looks to be very sturdy.
