Railroad Rutland RR 
Size 5 1/2" tall globe 
Condition Good

This is an Adlake Reliable Bellbottom style lantern frame. The frame is clearly stamped RUTLAND RR on the lid and has a shop stamped serial number of "9503" in the lid panel. The pot is from an Adlake #300 frame. It's the right size. The lid latch is broken off. One bail ear clip is missing. The frame is square and it sits pretty flat. The globe is an outstanding clear cast RUTLAND RR in an oval panel. The globe shows lots or minor flakes and chips from hard use. This is a very nice globe. Overall good condition for its age.
