Vintage 1919 Coleman AIR-O-LANTERN Model QL with Mica Globe. This 101 year old lantern comes from my Coleman collection of many years. It's a AIR-O-LANTERN Model QL manufactured by the Coleman Lamp Company in Wichita, KS. I know very little about this lantern, but it's air tube has the date of May 13, 1919. Based on that, the lantern could be either a 1919 or a 1920 model.
The fount is nickel, but with a hint of gold paint, which may have been a AIR-O-LANTERN model Coleman made and sent to France. As far as I know, the lantern is original except for the vent stud which is now brass. The globe is made of mica with a sliding metal door for lighting. This lantern has it's original "looped" generator, but also comes with Coleman's newer. Also included is the original Coleman hand pump.
