This is a very early Gas Camping Lantern made by Akron Lamp Company. I believe it date's to before 1920 and is a Model A and is marked DIAMOND LIGHT on the control knob. Nickel-plated brass Vent and Fount both in good shape with 100 years of grime and patina. I think they will clean and polish up nicely for the new owner.
The original MICA shade is about perfect with no damage to the panels of thin mica. Fuel cap marked AKRON LAMP CO. I have not fired this Lantern and I assume it will need a complete cleaning and service before doing so.
However, it is a survivor in original condition with no missing parts except the separate Air Pump needed to pressurize the fount. 1917 AKRON Model A Gas Camping LANTERN Diamond Light Complete & Original" is in sale since Tuesday, May 4, 2021.
