These Sunbeam Trailmaster lanterns were made by Sunbeam's
Neosho Products Company, Neosho, MO.
These double mantled lanterns are Model 5141 (left),
in Mike Fleener's collection, and Model 5179C (right).
This lp canister lantern
is identified as Pan Products on a decal on the side.
The Jenaer Suprax frosted globe is also etched Tsopan Gas;
The screw-on base is marked Made in Greece.
The lantern doesn't take US made canisters and may never have been run.
This lantern is in Tim Treutler's collection.
The Paulin company succeeded Humphrey Products in Kalamazoo, Michigan,
in the later 50's or 1960's.
This Camplight with a simpler tubular burner
can be compared to the Humphrey version here.
This light is in Glenn Knapke's collection.
Three versions of the Prepo Lite 400 LP lantern from Brien Page's collection.
The version on the left includes a tip cleaner that rotates and moves vertically.
Note the difference in height caused by the change in the mounting
of the globe cage to the LP (liquified petroleum gas) canister.
Prepo Corporation was located in Edgerton, Wisconsin.
The fuel canisters are no longer manufactured.
The Prepo Corporation also made this Model 100 stove.
The two burners are controlled independently
and will run for 2 1/2 hours under normal operation
on the canister of fuel.
The price on the dealer's card for this model,
in Suzanne Kennison's collection, is $17.95.
Prepo made this one burner stove, Model 105.
The LP fuel canister assembly fits in the stove for storage.
An adapter (not shown) was necessary to take the king size fuel canister.
This stove is in Brien Page's collection.
Prepo also made this one burner stove, Model 107.
This stove is also in Brien Page's collection.
This Prepo Model 208 aluminum and steel stove
used a separate LP fuel canister
inserted from the rear of the stove,
for each burner.
This stove is in Brien Page's collection.
This Model 2158 lantern was made by Primus Sievert, Sweden.
George Rocen has this unfired lantern
with the box and instructions.
Primus made this propane two burner stove for Sears
which was sold as Model 72476.
The unfired stove, in Brien Page's collection,
has a parts bag stamped Primus-Sievert AB,
made in Sweden.
Sievert, a Swedish company, made this Model 925 propane stove
which is dated Oct. 1959.
Closed (left), ready to use with the windscreen up (center), and showing the burner (right).
The refillable tank forms the base for the approximately 33cm tall stove.
This stove is in George Rocen's collection.
This Model 926 propane, 2-burner stove,
in Frederik Tivemark's collection, dates to 1963,
a couple of years before Primus and Max Sievert merged in 1966.
Frederick notes the light blue color is not typical for these stoves
and reflects the early 1960's.
Primus-Sievert made this two burner Model 2048 LP stove
that was sold by Sears as Model 72047.
Two, 14.1 oz propane cylinders can be stored in the stove when not in use.
The propane cylinder in use is hung on the taller windscreen on the left;
there is a shorter windscreen on the right side of the stove.
This unfired stove is in Glenn Knapke's collection.
This Primus-Sievert Model 2118
propane radiant heater
has a 7" diameter reflector
and is rated at 4000 BTUs.

This lantern is in Brien Page's collection.
The Thermos Division of the King Seeley Thermos Co.
made this Model 8352 Patio Light.
A small LP canister, that is no longer manufactured,
was fitted into the base from below.
A similar Model, 8351, had an open flame with no mantle.
This light is in Brien Page's collection.
The Tilley Lamp Co., Hendon, UK, made this Model BT25 Floodlight
that appears in a 1967 catalogue.
Paul Gildenhuys found this floodlight on his farm in South Africa and restored it.
The connection to a flexible LP gas line is in the lower-right in the right image.
Accessories included 2-5m tall tripod stands, a frosted lens, and a fog filter.
The lamp reflects 10,000 CP.
Tilley made this GN70 iron in the early 1960s
in their Northern Ireland factory (McRae).
The iron could be operated on LP or butane fuel
with the appropriate jet installed in the iron.
A hose was used to connect the fuel container to the iron.
This iron is in Herman Mulder's collection.
Trumbower Industries, Inc., Pardeeville, Wisconsin,
made this LP fueled Porta-Perk Brand percolator.
A fuel line connects the valve on top of the canister
with the burner unit under the percolator.
This appliance is in Bill Whitten's collection.
These lanterns were made by the Turner Corp. (Turner Brass Works), Sycamore, IL.
The lantern on the left, in Brien Page's collection, is Model LP5,
and attaches by a hose to a 20 lb propane cylinder.
The lantern on the right is similar to another in Brien's collection;
his is also identified as Model LP5 although this one has no identifying marks.
The simple designs are made with aluminum and steel.
This is another earlier Turner propane lantern model,
the Deluxe Camping Light.
The shape of this first propane container
presented challenges in the design of a stable fixture.
This early "slant" solution was not used very often.
The ventilator is red porcelain over steel.
Paperwork that came with this lantern
identifies it as Model LP-444 and was made in the 1960's.
The ventilator is polished aluminum.
The ventilator and globe on this model are larger
than on the Deluxe Camping Light above.
The lantern on the left is marked Turner on the base plate and the valve is embossed LP5
This lantern, in Toby Botkin's collection, connects by a hose to a propane tank,
or it can be unscrewed from the base plate and mounted directly on a propane cylinder.
The lantern in the center was unmarked when Glenn Knapke repainted the base plate;
the original paint was as on the lantern on the left.
Brien Page's unmarked canister model (right) is date stamped 5 62.
Both lanterns, center and right, have a similar air adjustment screw on the stem below the frames.
The upper image is of a Turner LP-100 Propane stove,
one of three in Brien Page's collection.
Two of them have an early 3/4" diameter coupling to the propane cylinder
as in the lower image - inner coupling and cylinder.
Turner Brass thought they could set the standard for cylinders in the early '50's,
but recalled as many appliances and cylinders as they could a year later
and replaced them with the 7/8" diameter that did become the standard.
Turner also made propane radiant heaters.
This Model LP-2440-B held two 14.1 oz propane cylinders
and could also be hooked up with a hose to a larger propane cylinder.
An earlier version of this heater was recalled in the mid 1990's
due to a possible defective burner element.
This heater is in Dana Kennison's collection.
Turner Brass produced Winchester brand propane lanterns and stoves
after they had been purchased by another company.
Brien Page got this unknown model in the styrofoam box.
It has been little used if at all.
The built-in igniter (right) produces a spark
to light the propane gas.
An unknown manufacturer made this Hot n' Quik propane powered water heater,
which is stamped "Made in the USA."
The heater will lift water from a storage tank (not shown)
by using the upper white plastic pump to prime the heater,
after which it will siphon water by itself.
Heated water can be drawn from the heater's tank by lifting the pump handle.
This water heater is in Bill Elwell's collection.
This open flame lamp is fueled by a butane canister in the base.
Dean Williams, whose collection this is in,
notes that it is similar to a Thermos brand patio light (see higher on this page)
but made in the style of an oil lamp.
A sticker on the base identifies the manufacturer as U.S. Products Co., Santa Fe, New Mexico;
another identifies the distributor as the Bu-Lite Company, Pomona, California.
This propane lantern is marked Volcan Industria Argentina.
The propane tank is date stamped APR 13 '61.
The burner cap for the mantle is ceramic.
There is a lighting hole in the frosted globe.
This lantern is in Tom Weaver's collection.
