ANTIQUE BRASS MINER'S LANTERN PROTECTOR LAMP & LIGHT #1203
5 Day Auction--This is an excellent looking antique all brass lantern made by the Protector Lamp and Lighting Co. LTD in Eccles, Manchester, England. The company started in 1873. This rather unique looking lantern measures 9 1/4" high, not including the heavy gauge hook at the top, x 3 1/2" in diameter at the base. This is a type 6 M & Q safety lamp, approval number B/28. We believe this is an old miner's lamp, sometimes called an "Old Deputy's Lamp". We read that they burn on metholated spirit. The fill hole is on the bottom. This lamp is made very well and it is sturdy, heavy and in superb condition. T are no dents or dings and the globe is fine.
