Railroad William Westlake

Type nickel on brass
Condition Good 

William Westlake is marked on the base of this open bottom frame conductor frame. There are patent dates up to 1868. The frame is nickel plated on brass. The frame is very clean with no issues at all. There is some plate loss to the top but no dings. The cage is held by wire wraps so it predates the use of joint clips. The threads on the fount are fine. The globe has a presentation cutting of H. K. Kimball. The globe has a considerable crack down through the lettering. Good basic condition..
