Dietz "Crystal" Lantern, circa 1891. The Dietz Crystal was produced in around 5 different models. This lantern is believed to be the first or second of the earliest models of the lantern. This model features no guard wire like that on other Crystal models. It is possible that the guard wire may have been removed for the attachment of the Buckeye Dash Lamp Lens Attachment which is featured on the back of the lantern.
