Lot 0107 Details

Description
A Kelly manufactured brass top bell bottom lantern with PRR stamped in the standard small block lettering on the lid. The brass top is in fine condition. The Kelly marking is near the vent holes on the top. The frame was clear coated years ago.

The globe is a fine PRR cast extended base and it's flashed red and not solid red. The globe has a slighting thin turned up top and it's been my experience that these globes typically date to around 1890. The PRR casting is in fancy lettering. The globe has some manufacturing flaws that make it a head turner. There are various scrapes and flakes off of the flashing on the base area.

This is a very nice display lantern.
