Note: Are you sure you need a "Globe?" Many people confuse a Lamp's Chimney with a Lantern's Globe. The easiest way to tell them apart is most lamp chimneys are placed directly on the burner or a gallery placed on the burner without being held in place at the top. A Lantern's Globe is usually placed on a globe plate that rests on the burner, and is held in place at the top by a retainer or spring loaded metal chimney. For help finding a Chimney, Click Here.
On the left is a Lantern with a Globe, held at both top and bottom. On this page we will help you find the Globe you need.
On the Right shows a Lamp where the burner gallery is the only part holding the Chimney in Place.
Below is a list of Links that make it easy to find the Globe you need.
NOTE: Below we offer replacement "Dietz" globes, as well as our own "W.T. Kirkman" Trademark globes, which use the original Dietz and Macbeth catalog numbers for reference, but will fit lanterns from most of the American manufacturers from the 1800's and 1900's.
The #852 Fitzall size globe is the appropriate replacement for #2 Cold Blast "Tall" lanterns, and post-1915 Hot Blast lanterns from the various manufacturers. The Fitzall size globe originates from the #0 Tubular size globe, which was common from 1868 to 1914.
The #850 "D-Lite" size globe is the appropriate replacement for #2 Cold Blast "Short" lanterns made after 1912 from various manufacturers.
