Dietz No. 2 D-Lite Lantern, circa. 1919. The No. 2 D-Lite replaced its predecessor the original D-Lite which proved to be unaffordable due to its top lifting telescopic chimney. The No. 2 D-Lite combined the D-Lite and No. 2 Wizard to create a side lifting lantern that was more affordable.
The LOC-NOB globe of this lantern is red signaling stop or danger. 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.
