Railroad New York State Canals 
Size big!
Type Dressel Fresnel lens
Condition Very Good - paint is thick

Made by Dressel in Arlington, New Jersey thai lamp stands 23" tall. The large Fresnel lens has a 6 1/2" display area. It's quite a bit larger than railroad signal lamps. The "MOHAWK LAMP" over "NEW YORK STATE CANALS" on the upper shield is hard to read because of the thick red paint. This is an unusual Canal Signal Lamp probably used between Syracuse and the Hudson River. Good condition.
