Lot #399 - Philadelphia & Reading Ry "Adams" tall globe lantern

 
   

      

 la40
Railroad Philadelphia & Reading 
Size 5 1/2" tall globe 
Condition Excellent

This is an A&W "Adams" with a twist off pot. This frame did come with a platform for a later "Corning" style globe so this globe is correct for this frame. The frame has the standard P&R RY stamping in the lid and patent dates that go to 1909 on the edge of the lid. The base has the band wrap around the base wires and flat vertical wires. The P&RRY casting in the globe is strong in fancy lettering without a panel. This is standard for the Reading. Somebody did an excellent cleaning job on this lantern. Excellent condition.
