Railroad Rutland 
Size 3" tall globe 
Condition Good / Fair

The frame is an Adlake Kero model with a date code of 3-46 which stands for 3rd quarter of 1946. The lid is clearly stamped RUTLAND RY in the small Adlake lettering. The globe is a red 3" Kopp (K in a circle) that could be new or old. The collection this lantern came from did not have any obvious new/replacement globes in it. The frame was painted a muted silver/gray color. Some of the paint has been removed. The bottom had its condensation hole enlarged by hand. This is a complete lantern. Good to Fair condition.
