This relatively rare MKT or Katy Railroad Lantern is in very nice condition; complete, with burner. The top of the lantern, made by Dressel, Arlignton, N.J., is embossed with "MKT" and "M-K-T RR" is etched on the clear globe, which is about 3.5 inches in height. I didn't clean the lantern, other than wash dust off the globe. The burner, as it should be, is marked Dressel, Arlington, N.J. The lantern came from an estate sale in Humboldt, KS, w t was an M-K-T Railroad depot until, I think the 1950s.
