German bakelite lantern

Article about: I see these kind of lanterns and the Luftwaffe candle lanterns quite a bit on this website. Bunker Militaria. Pretty good website to deal with. Deals a lot with field gear.

    Hello,
    This is a nice example of the carbide lantern.
    If i remember well i paid around 75 euro for a lantern with a spare carbide container. Good catch...congrats, they're nice items.
    Thanks

    I asked two museum curators and they didn't know a thing. I was going to ask some other junk yard guys but hadn't gotten around to it. It really looked like they were on someone's farm but I will keep asking around.

    Hello,
    Yes there are good deals around in Europe for a certain category of items like this lantern. You paid a higher price i guess, but at least your example is complete, mine lacks the removable front panel made of metal. The spare carbide container was given to me after the deal. The seller found it just when i was about to leave and gave it to me as part of the lantern...i didn't complain of course...
    Thanks

    Could I see a picture of the carbine container.
    I paid 80$ for the lantern plus 20$ chipping so 100$ from Europe.
    The reason I was asking about the price is because I have seen them here in the US for 600$ and up crasy.

    Hello,
    You've made a very good deal, congrats...
    $600 is just crazy for such an item, i wish i had a few for sale to american collectors (only kidding).
    Here are two photos of the Karbid container, made of the same brown bakelite than the lantern.
