This is a special globe. Coming from New England you might assume that it is Providence & Worcester. OK, with a tin fount, it could just as easily be from the Pittsburg & Western. There are probably other roads too.

The brass top bellbottom frame has a William Westlake hallmark on the bell. The top also has a Westlake look. It's early when the bail goes through the vent and not off of bail ears on the cage. There is no railroad marking on the frame. This frame has never been cleaned. It has even dark dirty rust with no obvious rot.

The globe is a 5 1/2" standard size with an extended base. The P&W RR casting is in a rectangular panel and the lettering is smaller than average. The globe was flashed red so it has a slightly molted look color wise. There are some flakes to the flashing so you can see "clear" here and there.
