NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD

Item # 11506

One of the finest NP lanterns we've had the pleasure of bringing to market. This Adams & Westlake model 1882 tin top bell bottom lantern is stunning in condition. This frame has a beautiful uncleaned smooth metal finish overall with large amounts of original tinning all over the lantern. The boldest N.P.R.R. marking possible on the side of the lid, and just a pristine lower vent area that is completely tinned and unrepaired. There is what appears to be a tiny solder repair on the outer lip of the bell that blends nicely with the overall condition. Full and distinct Adams & Westlake patent stamps on the bottom of the bell. Of the handful or so of these in existence, this is one of the top examples.

The lantern comes with a clear extended base globe with the letters McL finely wheel cut in the side. The globe has no major faults, only minor rim chips.
Truly one of the finest pre-1890 NP lanterns known to exist.

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.

COLORADO FUEL & IRON COMPANY

Item # 11404

This Handlan round top lantern if marked CF&I Co on the lid and is clean with an odd match of tinning and patina. It looks like they only tinned the shoulder of the lid. Not a re-tin job, it is original that way. Some minor rust on the globe retainer, otherwise excellent and unrepaired. It has its original twist off fount showing the Handlan patent dates. Long ago the pot was soldered in the twist off cup for some reason but it remains original and in good shape. Very nice frame and hard to find Colorado piece.

It comes with a red unmarked globe that is cast MEG Co 50. The globe has minor flea bite chips on the rims and that's it. Great looking set.
