Vintage Sears & Roebuck J. This vintage Sears JC Higgins lantern is in nice good condition. The lantern was taken apart and all pieces were cleaned and polished up.
This lantern is definitely a SHOW piece item! The fount does show some paint wear and light rust, particularly below the pump where the paint came off (see pic).
The JC Higgins label is in great shape (see pic). NO DINGS and NO DENTS to the fount. Just polished up the chimney cap and fount and it looks amazing! The glass globe is marked "Heat Resisting MADE IN USA " in green lettering and has NO DAMAGE, CRACKS or CHIPS. The chimney vent is clean, shows some very very very small rusting on edge (see pic).
The burner frame has very light rust (see pic). The generator works as it should and comes thru the pinhole (see pic). The fount is not date stamped as is typical with JC models (see pic). The fount was cleaned out but could use a better cleaning. The lantern has not been fired or tested but does hold pressure when pumped.
The pump and fuel cap gaskets both look ok. The fuel has been completely drained. Thanks for checking this out. I pack very well and you can be rest assured that your items will arrive in the same condition you see pictured.
