This is a Hong Kong Dietz lantern. Dietz stopped US made lanterns in 1971 and moved that over to Hing Kong. In 1982 lantern production moves to mainland China. That makes this one semi-vintage. The bonus here it still has the original packing material, sticker, tag and bag. To make it displayable I am going to take off the cardboard pieces but I will keep them in the bag.
I actually use lanterns like this in winter and yes I use kerosene. That and I have two propane lanterns. People like to drive into the power poles up here in winter. I use my generator so I can stay online and run the heater or the water heater. Thus lanterns and lamps for light. It is kind of an adventure when the power goes out.
