Embury Little Air Pilot Lantern, circa. 1939. This lantern is similar in manufacturing of the mainline Embury no.2 air pilot model of lantern. It is estimated that this model was created around the same time or shortly after the no.2 and would have been produced until the Embury Company was purchased by the R.E. Dietz Manufacturing Company in 1953. The "Air Pilot" line of lanterns was introduced in 1939 to replace the "Supreme" model of lantern.
