This outfit is heavy cast aluminum, t is corrosion on the lower portion at the back; this can been seen in the photos. It is limited to the surface, which is to say it has not rotted throught the case, it affects the original red paint . T are screws missing, one that holds the lid in place and two that hold the handle in place. Other wise this early electric lantern is complete and very restorable. The inside has only surface oxidation, it is not corroded no Signed: La France Electric Lantern - US Pat.
