The Dietz #2 Blizzard, now known as the #80 Blizzard, was originally billed as the “King of the Cold Blast Lanterns,” and was in fact one of the first Cold Blast Lanterns produced; being so, it takes the older style #852 Fitzall globe. This workhorse of a lantern is still used as a primary source of light in many parts of the world, and is still a real favorite here in the U.S.
The #80 Blizzard Lantern comes Wicked and Ready for Oil. The Default globe that comes in this Lantern is the Dietz marked Clear Globe. The Dietz Marking can be removed with acetone. Other available colors such as Red, Blue, Green, and Amber can add meaning to your Lantern.
