Rare Coleman Poultry House Quick-lite Lantern E20 1919 Hens That Lay Big Tank For Sale

Rare Coleman Poultry House Quick-lite Lantern E20 1919 Hens That Lay Big Tank

What a spectacular old Barn Find! A very rare Coleman Quick-Lite Poultry house lantern. Standing at a large 19 inches tall upon an 8 1/2",5 quart tank - this old Lantern was intended to keep the hen house lit throughout the night so the hens would keep laying.

The famous quip is still clearly visible on the side: "THE HENS THAT LAY ARE THE HENS THAT PAY" in nice 3/8" letters.

It is missing it's original Mica shade unfortunately but is otherwise very solid. Nice large tank which is lightly worn, but remarkably free from any rust, cracks or damage. The lantern frame and handleis rusted as shown (but still very solid) and the ventilator hood does have a few dings and a nice patina. The lantern elements appear to be in good shape, The control knob is just the slightest bit stiff but moves completely and appears issue free. The upper wire knob also moves smoothly. The mantle holders are clear and in good condition as shown. The3 part fill cap is included and is in good condition. Can of Soda in the final photo for size reference.

There is a patent date on the lantern stem which reads: "US PAT MAY 13 1919" and below that "BRITISH PATENT 153329"

I couldn't find a specific marked model number on the lantern, but from my research I believe it's an E20.

Overall a very nice rare old lantern. I'll be happy to answer any questions I can, please feel free to email. Good Luck offerding!
