This CM&StPRy 1895 Adams & Westlake brass top bell bottom is in uncommonly excellent condition. These lanterns were not well tinned from the factory so to find one with this amount of tinning left on it is pretty remarkable. Just a beautiful pristine and perfect frame. It has the single row of lower vent holes and correct soldered together bell. Just an unbelievably high quality frame.

The globe in this lantern is superior in every way. Cast lettering is a 10 out of 10. The color of this globe is a slightly lighter and more pleasing red than usually found. Earlier square end panel corning marked globe in mint condition with no problems. One of the more remarkable Milwaukee brass top lanterns to hit the market in quite some time.

This is a nice model 1913 Adlake Reliable frame embossed CNS&MRR on the lid. Painted silver but appears to be in good rust free condition underneath. The fuel font is in good condition with the bottom having perhaps a tiny pin hole in it at worst. Nice frame.

The globe is certainly the star of the set. Corning 5 3/8" signal green globe etched CNS&MRR on the side. The etching straddles the mold line but that's the only complaint as the rims of the globe show minor nicks and there are silver paint remains on the top and bottom of the globe. Cnx marking is fully cast and there are no cracks or other damage. Super hard to find this color!

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.

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.
