Dietz Little Wizard Lantern, circa 1913. Globe is a 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.
This artifact appears to be the model of Little Wizard created before the 1950's due to having a smaller fuel tank. Post 1950's a larger fuel tank version of the Little Wizard was implemented giving the model a larger base.
