NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD

Item # 11619

Railroad Signal Lamp & Lantern Co. made this styel of brass top wire bottom frame for the Northern Pacific starting in 1889. This example is in beautiful original condition with no issues. This frame has a nice overall chocolate brown patina over smooth metal. NPRR embossed on the lid is one of the best embossings on this style of frame we've seen. Twist off fount and burner are in excellent condtion and all solder joints are tight. The 1889 patent dates are just visible above the lower vent holes.

The globe in this lantern is a beautiful early cast NPRR serif letter globe in a rectangular panel. The globe is crystal clear and in near mint condition with only minor rim nicks. Nice strong casting on the letters. An above average globe.

NP brass top lanterns of any kind hardly ever surface, don't miss this rare opportunity.

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.

NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILWAY

Item # 11611

This is the definition of factory original. NPRy on the lid of this Adams and Westlake Reliable model 1913 wire bottom frame. The lantern itself is 100% tinned and in display ready condition. Font and burner are in excellent working order. All components excellent.

The globe in this lantern is noteworthy. Although it is just a clear etched corning marked globe with minor rim nicks on the edges, this globe and the etching of "NPRy" in small letters we have documented to be the original factory supplied globes for this specific model from A&W.

This lantern is a variation seldom offered and hardly ever complete with its original factory issue globe. A survivor of history in every way.

OREGON RAILWAY & NAVIGATION CO.

Item # 11550

OR&NCo on the lid in large letters of this Adams & Westlake model 1892 Adams wire bottom lantern frame. This lantern is the earlier single wire guard version produced between 1892 and about 1896 before some key features were introduced such as the conical globe retainer and second wire guard. The metal surface has been cleaned long ago and shows light uniform pitting with areas of smooth metal. It remains fully original with all correct components. A very good example of a hard to find frame.

The globe in this set is perhaps a bit earlier than the lantern itself. Red flashed cast in a rectangular panel is OR&NCo in small serif lettering. It is believed to be the earliest of the cast OR&N globe styles, perhaps dating from the early 1880's. The globe has a nice strike and is in fine condition with minor rim chipping. Only a handful of these globes are known in collections today. A very nice early lantern from Oregon's rich rail history on the Columbia River.

DETROIT GRAND HAVEN & MILWAUKEE RAILROAD

Item # 11405

DGH&MRR in big letters on the lid of this Adams & Westlake model 1873 brass top bell bottom lantern. Just a rich beautiful patina with no pitting and just enough tinning left to be delightful in condition. The frame has a large #5 stamped opposite the letters. the bell is from a slightly later time period in the middle 1880's but has been on the lantern forever as the patina matches exactly. This type of bell was only made for a few years and probably was switched to this lantern in service in the 1880's.

The globe is a clear unmarked extended base globe with minor rim chipping only. We are not aware of any other examples of this frame but a few more must exist somewhere. Maybe not in this fine of condition but for sure this is a rarity seldom, if ever seen.
