Kerosene Lanterns

Anyone know where to get a "Made in the USA" kerosene lantern? The last couple years I have bought several made in china and they all leaked out of the bottom. The last one had a small town USA name on the box, but turned out it was still made in china and it leaked too.

When you are on the road and you drive by a place that has an antique sign, but looks more like a junk yard stop in. Also flea markets. We were camping in Berlin MD. with another couple, and they bought two Dietz for the picnic table at night. With E-Bay the picture of the item doesn't always show the defects. With a flea market or yard sale you get to hold it in your hand, and look it over. IMHO

This explains why you can't find one made in the USA.

With more than 160 years of manufacturing experience of hurricane lanterns, Dietz has established good brand awareness/recognition due to good and reliable quality and reasonable prices. We are selling our hurricane lanterns all over the world with major markets in North America, African and Middle East countries.
Imported from China (No domestic source exists), an original American manufacturer of hurricane lanterns, which was established in New York, U.S.A. in 1840. It moved its production facility to China in 1956 maintaining offices in Hong Kong.

Thanks Tommy, I will check those out. I have not been able to find anything other than china junk at the local retailers. I had a couple several years ago that where great, but trashed them after the globes where broke. Damn kids. I like to use them for unobtrusive light and I fill with citronella for bug control.

Thanks Mike, They do have the antiques. Made before 1956 they where made in NY and then they where made in china and exported here. The antiques go for anywhere from 75 to several hundred dollars. That's a little out of my price range. lol.
