      Joe,

      There are Star's, both open bottom and bell bottom, Dietz No. 6's with
      matching etched globes, also Dietz Vestas with 1910 date and later. The
      earliest lanterns, I know of, used by FJ&G, were C. T. Hamm brass top bell
      bottoms, though each was unmarked, they came from the Gloversville tool
      house. I have seen a Dressel tall globe, unmarked except for the etched
      clear globe. I have not yet seen a cast globe.

      Found a NYO&W Dietz No. 6 with clear cast NYO&W globe in the Gloversville
      tool house also. Would like to know the history of that lantern.
