Dietz Lantern


I tried photographing another of those wonderful gifts I received for Christmas. My shelves are full of items to capture, I am struggling with the figuring out the best way to present each item. I have a feeling I am over-thinking this too much. I should put the dang thing in front of the camera and click away… LOL

This is an old Dietz Lantern. There is a possibility it was manufactured in the Syracuse, NY factory (no promises, only wishful thinking). The entire Dietz lantern story is fascinating and I have only scratched the surface. I did find the following website where the factory in Syracuse has been converted to loft apartments (The Dietz Lofts). I have another lantern I received for Christmas, before I get that one photographed I’ll see what additional info I can find on the company…
