Here is a photo just received of what this guy has. Upper right hand corner there is a huge Lantern of sorts but again no idea what that is from.

The carbide lantern is there underneath the huge one

Here are some other Lamps and some sort of heater in the very front.
Along with some copper tea kettles.

The one in back looks like a coach light, either from a horsedrawn carriage or a very early horseless carriage.... :R

That's a nice round wick lamp there in the second picture - the one with the skinny chimney.

BTW - I used to work for both Hella and a Czech company called Autopal. Both make automotive lighting but both have also been in business since the 1880's. Both got their start making carriage lanterns.

Very cool to be able to walk through their private museums.

The black and red one on the left looks like a railroad lantern.
