In 1913, Ontario Lantern & Lamp released their version of the new short globe lantern, alongside other lantern manufacturers. E.T. Wright came out with the WrightLight, C.T. Ham came out with the HamLight, R.E. Dietz made the D-Lite, and Ontario Lantern & Lamp; the Trulite.
The first model of the Trulite was this top-lift model, the globe did not lift, but the chimney did. The globe plate is hinged rather than a lift. This design was not terribly popular and in late 1914 it was changed to a regular lift design.
This Trulite has the larger filler cap, and fount found on the late 1914 and later regular lift Trulite. Which likely means it was a transitional lantern made shortly before the regular lift lanterns started production. I’ve decided to leave this one in ‘as found’ condition. It was cleaned with a strong abrasive like sandpaper, so it’s quite scratched. However, it does have a nice look to it.
