Handlan Kerosene Signal Lantern, circa. 1930's-1940's. This lantern is different from other Handlan products, it features a style similar to traffic lanterns made by the Dietz company though it is only estimated that this would be its use. The Handlan company produced mostly kerosene signal lanterns out of St. Louis Missouri. The red globe of this lantern would have been used to signal stop or danger.
