Lot #99 - Concord RR Thompson Bellbottom Lantern

 
 

 

 la11
Railroad Concord 
Size 6" Globe
Type bell bottom
Condition Very Good

The CONCORD RR is spelled out completely on the lid of this 1869 patent lantern. This lantern was cleaned some time ago. The lid is exceptionally clean with original tin. The pinch pot does not have the 2 small spring clips underneath but it's definitely a "flat top" Thompson pot. The glass fount and brass burner are appropriate for this model. This version of the top does not come with a brass ferrule for the set screw. One picture shows the under-side of the lid. The globe is a correct 6" extended base Thompson "tear drop". The globe is unmarked. Very Good condition.
