Paull's No. 0 Lantern, circa. 1923. This lantern is believed to have been manufactured by the Wheeling Stamping Company, also sometimes referred to as the 'Nail City Lantern Company'. The company originated in 1877 Wheeling City West Virginia where it produced around 100 lanterns a day in the form of two variations called "Leader" lanterns. The lanterns were created entirely of raw materials available to the factory except for the globes, which were created at the Buckeye Glass Works, in Martin's Ferry Ohio.
The globe of this lantern has been replaced with a Dietz LOC-NOB Fitzall. LOC-NOB refers to the pair of ears on a Dietz lantern globe used to keep the globe from falling out when tilting the globe plate for lighting or trimming of the wick. Patented date 12-4-23
