The ‘FIREFLY’ – 1,000 CP Pressure Lantern
This amazingly bright lantern is handmade in Lancaster County, PA, by H.C. Lanterns. This bright two mantle lantern features a heavy gauge stainless steel tank with seamless bottom, a stainless frame and hood, a double head burner and a large fuel cap to make refueling a breeze. This lantern has a large two liter fuel tank and the bottom of the tank is shaped to create a fuel reserve so when the lantern starts to run out of fuel you can tip the tank and get a few more minutes of light. The lantern utilizes the HC 500 Head and has two knobs like the Leacock Coleman 107 or an older Quick Lite Lantern with a Q55 Generator. The black knob is a positive fuel shut-off and wire hand L-Shaped knob is for the pricker to clean the jet.
This lantern comes in four different fuel and filler cap configurations.
If you think this lantern looks like a Leacock Lamp 107SS you are right! Leave it to the Amish to make a high capacity version of the Leacock Lamp. Easily use your Leacock Shades and/or globes to complete the custom look you want!
