OSL RR in large letters on the lid of this 1897 Adams & Westlake THE ADAMS lantern. Absolutely the best 97 Adams large insert pot style OSL frame you'll find. Nearly 100% of its original tinning intact. The frame has had one minor repair of a lower vent hole that does not show from the outside of the lantern. Otherwise just totally mint condition.
The globe has very nice clear cast serif letters OSL cast in a rectangular panel with the corning hallmark cast on the reverse. Probably one of the top 5 best OSL frames of its kind in existence.

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.

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.
