Railroad Mobile & Ohio  
Size 5 1/2" tall globe - Standard
Type Reliable frame
Condition Good

Unusual E. A. Kinsey Adlake Reliable lantern. Kinsey was a Cincinnati, Ohio Hardware company and they had lanterns made with their name by Adlake. This is not a common marking on a Reliable. The globe is a clear cast M&O RR (Mobile & Ohio) in fancy lettering in a square end panel. The globe shows distress and loads of tiny scratches and one top flake that do hurt the appearance. It is still a nice globe with the Cnx Corning hallmark. The pot and burner are from the last versions used in a Reliable. Good condition.
