This is a skaters lantern marked Dietz Scout Made in USA.
I can't read the patent date, but I think it says July 26, 1904??
Chimney is embossed with Dietz Scout NY USA.
The lantern is about 7 ½" tall and with the handle up it is 11" tall. The base is about 3" in diameter.
It has been painted and it has rust on the bottom, like most lanterns do.
A great old lantern. Click on photos to view larger images - move your curser off the photos - move it back to the photo and wait a short minute and click again on icon in lower right corner of photo to enlarge again to see detail and condition.
