Lot #32 - Grand Trunk Railway - Tri Color Lamp

 
 

 la06 
Railroad Grand Trunk Railway 
Size 10" tall
Type Single lens with rotating interior
Condition Very Good 

This is a European style Grand Trunk tri-color lamp. The single lens has a nice bevel that means this lamp has some age to it. There is an internal ring that rotates with Clear, Red and Blue panels. The brass lever on the back releases the ring mechanism so you can change the color that is showing. The European influence on Canadian items is very interesting. The metal was cleaned long ago. It has a layer of klear-kote that reminds me of 1980s lanterns. There is no maker's mark. The top area is clearly stamped "GTR". Very good condition.
