Item # 11960

Superb quality lantern in this Northern Pacific Armspear tall globe lantern. The frame is a 1913 patent frame in outstanding original condition. Cleaned but has a nice medium patina on it, no rust and very smooth. This is a way above average frame in condition. It has the harder to find twist off font cup that also has a removable and drop in font in it. This transition design is pretty hard to find examples from and this one is certainly one of the better ones. The globe in this lantern matches the quality of the frame. Super strong NPRR cast lettering on this corning style globe with rectangular panel.
If you've waited for a quality NP lantern to come up for sale, this is the one.

Item # 11955

Queen of the shortlines. This extremely rare 1908 Adams & Westlake ADAMS model is marked V&TRy on the lid and is in pristine condition. Plenty of tinning under the lid and on the lower waste area and cage. There are absolutely no issues with the frame at all. The globe is an original corning style clear globe marked V&TRy in large lettering across the middle. The globe has an unfortunate chunk that has been glued back in place but surprisingly does not affect the display position as it is on the side of the base and is hard to see when the etching is facing forward. Just an outstanding western relic from one of the most desirable roads in the Old West.

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.
