A Steam Gauge Lamp & Lantern frame with a 6" (really 5 7/8") size globe. The frame has a single piece with pinch pot. The brass top is fine. The Steam Gauge hallmark is the older method of a stamping across the vent area in an arc. The later models are embossed. The pinch pot should look familiar to NYC collectors. It fits a Dietz #6. This is by design. The larger diameter 6" globe frames were designed to re-use this type of pinch pot. The bail has a broken tip on one bail ear. The bell has "39" stamped on one side. The bell has pin holes. The metal is heavily pitted.

The globe is a very nice red cast flashed model. It has a nice extended base. The DL&W lettering is huge and there is no panel. It's a great globe with minimal flaking.
