BURLINGTON CEDAR RAPIDS & NORTHERN

Item # 12772

Adams & Westlake patent 1889 ADAMS frame marked BCR&N in large letters on the lid. This rare frame is in excellent original condition with no pitting and smooth surface that is uncleaned and untouched. As with most 89's there are a couple of loose solder joints but not bad. There is one dent and minor separation at the top of the globe seat that is an easy fix. The fuel font is from a model 1897 but good fit and the patina matches so it appears to have been there a long time.

The globe is a clear etched free blown 5 3/8" extended base globe marked CRI&PRR in big letters. one tiny chip out of the extended base keeps it from being perfect. Super nice etching. You'll search a long time to find another BCR&N lantern for sale these days. One this nice is sure to command a lot of attention.

SAN ANTONIO & ARANSAS PASS

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.
