Feuerhand pre-war 260

  • Greetings to all,

    My question is about Feuerhand lanterns of the 1930's and 1940's, specifically the 260.

    What were the finishes used for the ones made for export to the United States? Were some painted or japanned? Were some left bare metal?

    Thanks for any enlightenment,


  • Hi Ken,

    Feuerhand lanterns were primarily supplied to the USA with a bright tinned finish.

    However, the FH 260 could also be obtained painted red, or bronzed in gold or copper.
