Bought from a collection of a gentleman who bought them at the R.E. Dietz Mfg. closing estate auction sale in the 1990s Both are unstamped , undated, no lift systems. The bigger of the two is an uncompleted mockup , no signs of a bail, hinged cone , burner installed. Both are unfired , unused as they should be. The one with the globe is marked Sample on the bottom . You be the judge what they were trying to make here ? Possibly the Clipper, Hy-Lo, Monarch models ? Sold together as thats how they were found. A truly unique item for a Dietz collector, great conversation pieces. Condition - excellent, both only have light surface rust , no heavy rusting or pitting present.
