This classic Dietz Little Wizard kerosene lantern has a red glass globe and may have been used on street barricades prior to electric flashers.
I feel this makes a great piece of rustic or industrial decor and has a nice mix of fairly clean metal and rust.
Use it as decor or restore it to it's original glory, or at least enough to use it as a light source. The lantern does have some heavier rust on the tank and near the fuel filler cap. The cap does not come off but with some care and a rust solvent like Liquid Wrench, it may be possible to remove the cap. The wick adjuster will also need some work since it is also rusty. (there are some good videos on YouTube on how to restore these great lanterns.)
The tank seems solid and I don't see any holes. The bottom of the tank is very clean. Since I can't open the fuel cap I can't tell how clean the interior is but I don't hear a lot of rust rattling inside.
As you can see in one photo, the chimney does lift up with no issues.
The red glass globe appears to be solid with no cracks that I can see. It also appears to be original.
Use it for decor, or fix it up and use it as it was meant to be used!
