Original Coleman® Patents

Original US Patent and Trademark Office filings by The Coleman Company offer in insight into the design, function and history of the subject inventions. And they almost always provide beautiful hand-made cross-sectional views of the invention.

I have listed all the patents I could find for vintage Coleman® products to include lamps, lanterns, stoves, irons, heaters and even electric coffee pots. Many of the patents are for individual parts and pieces, and one are two are purely for a special design.

These US Patents can be found at the USPTO and Google Patents websites.

If you know of a patent that I did not locate during my research, please notify me at info@oldtowncoleman.com so I can add it.

Always maintain proper ventilation. Appliances need oxygen and so do you.  If there isn’t enough to go around, you’ll lose.



Need Local Help?




Never fuel or light a lamp or lantern inside your home, cabin or tent. Perform these tasks outside, in an area where a defective part or "operator error" won't be disastrous.
