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 globe of this lantern is a LOC-NOB, 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. The red tint of the globe would have been used to signal stop or danger.
