Legendary Dietz oil lanterns remain lit - even in the most boisterous of weather! Since 1840 Dietz kerosene lanterns have been used on boats at sea, in the covered wagons of pioneers heading west, for railroad signals, and by farmers finding their way to the barn in a snowstorm. Our authentic Dietz lanterns are made by The Dietz Lantern Company; with some models in continuous production for over 100 years. Dietz hurricane lanterns are constructed with plates of tin-coated steel, made with the same tooling and presses they've always used, and coated with rugged enamel to ward off rust. The Dietz Oil Lanterns are made to be used on the homestead. They're resilient even when accidently knocked around. Due to seamless operation even in lawless winds, Dietz lanterns are known around the world as, "The Old Reliable."
