PORTLAND ELECTRIC POWER CO.

Item # 11551

From golden years of the interurban era in Portland Oregon comes this tall globe Adlake lantern from the Portland Electric Power Co. Last in succession behind the Oregon Water Power & Railway, and the Portland Railway Light & Power, The PEP Co. was the third in succession to the original OWP&Ry and was followed by the Portland Traction Co. before finally ceasing interurban electric operations in the late 1950's. This lantern is an Adlake Reliable model 1923, the last of the Adlake tall globe lanterns. It is in beautiful condition clean and ready to display with no issues.

The globe is a matching red etched globe marked PEPCo in small letters. Dual marked by Corning and Libby Glass Co., making it a relative rarity in itself.

Beautiful set from the height of the interurban empire in the Pacific Northwest.

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.

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.

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.
