Red / Clear #39 Globe in Penna Lines BB Lantern Frame

Lot 0271
An interesting red over clear #39 size globe in an Adams & Westlake bellbottom frame. The frame has a twist-off bell. The lid has PENNSYLVNAIA LINES stamped in standard A&W lettering. The bell has a tin fount.<br
The globe is a fine red over clear that has to be hand blown. It has a nice pronounced line where the two colors meet. The globe has an extended base and will fit any old standard bellbottom frame that does not have a "Corning" support base. The globe shows minimal use. There is not maker's etching on the globe. I do not know if the Pennsy ever used a red/clear signal. I know that among fire lantern collectors, this would be a prized color used by a Fire Chief.
