Coleman gas lantern

Coleman gas lantern

Description:

A red 200A (300cp) model Coleman lantern donated by Katrina Chevrette. It was found on the McEwan farm. It was manufactured by the Coleman Company and collaborated with Pyrex in the United States, as there was a painted label on the shade (glass). The company was first found in 1914 by William Coffin Coleman who first began selling high pressure gasoline fueled lamps. Although, as poor sales increased before when working with the Irby & Gilliand company who manufactured the 'The Efficient' Pendant Arc lamp No. 6 model, Coleman decided to redesign it and began producing lamps in 1903. Eventually, the Coleman Company became a worldwide success since 1914 and current models today either use kerosene, gasoline, Coleman fuel (white gas), and/or propane. The base of the lantern has the "Coleman" label, and on the stem has the writing engraved with "200- Use Generator- No. T-66" which indicates the model of the lantern. On the gas lighting wheel, there is writing that says "Open 1/4 Turn to Left and Light" on the top and "After Mantle Burns Bright Open as Far as Possible" on the bottom. The handle has a piece of blue tape attached that reads "Empty Lamp of Kerosene", in which before the lantern used kerosene as fuel.
