DULUTH & IRON RANGE RAILROAD

Item # 12456

Some good history from the Iron Range here. D&IRRR marked on the lid of this Adlake model 1913 Reliable frame. Nice brown patina covers the lid, on this frame. Signs of light pitting underneath but to clean this would be a crime against history. Of note is the lower wire ring that seems to have sat in a puddle of water which spared the rest of the frame from decay. It's take some pretty heavy corrosion but is intact and doesn't detract from the rest of the presentation. The rest of the frame shows good virgin tinning and a dry surface that is devoid of any collector's tinkering. Just a time capsule of history in this piece.

The globe in the lantern is a hard to find marked Iron Range globe. Clear etched D&IRRR to match the frame. It has the usual small chipping but no damage and it is crystal clear. When collectors look for untouched specimens of history, this is what they look for.

SAN ANTONIO & ARANSAS PASS

Item # 12381

Beautiful Handlan round top tall globe frame marked in large letters SA&AP on the lid. This Texas line is difficult to find any hardware from, let alone a lantern with such great tinning. This frame remains nearly 80% tinned and in excellent original condition. The font may not be factory original but appears to have been with the frame for a long while as it matches perfectly.

The globe is a red original Corning globe with hallmark. Although it appears a collector has added the SA&AP marking to the globe, this is a very attractive lantern and if you are fortunate enough to have an original marked globe, this would be the perfect compliment.

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
