In the late 1950's when the Dietz Company relocated the lantern division to Hong Kong, the labor intensive production of square tube lanterns was ceased and the related tooling was destroyed. To produce the W.T. Kirkman No. 0 "Tubular" Brass Lantern, an entirely new set of tooling and patterns had to be made, not to mention a new glass mold to make an authentic No. 0 Hot Blast globe. Our goal was to produce a lantern true to the earlier designs of the 1870's to '90's, but to also incorporate some of the later improvements, such as the leak-proof double crimp tank and wing-lock burner. The result of our efforts is the finest lantern made today, and the first square tube lantern to be manufactured in over forty years. The W.T. Kirkman No. 0 "Tubular" Brass Lantern is sure to become a collector's piece, as production is very limited and each one will be numbered and registered to it's owner.
