Item # 12033

EP&SW embossed on the shoulder of this 1913 Adlake Reliable in nice restored condition. The lid shows some medium pitting but rust free, all solid metal with no pinholes.

Fuel font and burner are matching but the threaded collar has come unsoldered and is attached to the burner. Easy repair. Overall a nice complete original frame. The globe is a beautiful honey amber corning hallmarked globe in excellent condition. Just a really attractive color and makes the frame really stand out.

FORT DODGE DES MOINES & SOUTHERN RAILROAD

Item # 12032

This lantern is a diamond in the rough with good potential for the restorationist and hard to find Iowa collector. FtDDM&SRR embossed on the lid of this 1909 A&W double wire guard frame. The frame has some definite needs to attend to but overall shows good potential. Starting at the top, the globe retainer strap pin in the dome has been replaced and does the job but inside shows that it was done with a threaded screw and not an original pin type rivet. The lantern has been cleaned and is rust free but the removal of rust has exposed a bunch of tiny pin holes in the lid that can easily be filled and are not apparent unless held up to the light. It appears that the bottom font cup has been re-soldered to the verticals rather crudely and could use a clean up to finish the restoration. All in all, a worthy frame for a careful restoration given its rarity.
The globe is a beautiful red etched corning style globe marked FtDDM&SRR and has the normal use chipping and mold flaws, but no damage and the etching is strong and beautiful. A serious candidate for a good restoration.

OREGON SHORT LINE RAILROAD

Item # 11620

O.S.L. in large letters on the lid of this model 1897 Adams & Westlake ADAMS frame. Any pre-1900 OSL lantern is difficult to find these days and this frame is hard to beat. Some very minor pitting in some isolated spots but overall this frame shows smooth metal and tinning over virtually the entire surface. The twist off font looks to be from an early R.E. Dietz frame but fits and fills the spot until the appropriate A&W model can be obtained. A gorgeous uncompromised frame in excellent condition.

The globe in this lantern is a clear cast extended base style marked OSL in big fat letters. Very few of these globes exist in any condition. The only thing keeping this globe from being unbelievable is the impact cracks emanating from the top rim on opposite the lettering. The globe displays very nicely and again, fills the spot until an upgrade can be obtained.

Any OSL extended base frame or globe is hard to come by and this set certainly has the potential to be a top shelf addition.

PRICE: $790.00
