Lot #79 - Pennsylvania RR Bellbottom Lantern

 
 

la19
Railroad Pennsylvania 
Size 5 1/2" globe
Type Bellbottom
Condition Good - see globe

This is a standard A&W bellbottom lantern design. It has the normal fancy PRR stamping on the lid. The bell has the A&W patent information on the underside. The frame is straight and square. The globe is the unusual rounded end panel PRR casting. The globe is very heavy and it has an extended base. Some time between when I traded for this lantern and today it's got a crack in the top on one side. It does not look like a screaming "grower" and it almost looks like a weird angle on it killed itself. It's an odd globe design. Good condition.
