RARE NYNH&H Railroad Lantern w/ CAST Red Globe

This auction is for a NYNH&H marked Adams & Westlake No. 100 model lantern in exceptional condition with a red embossed 4 1/2" globe. Globe is embossed with "CNX", the Corning Glass Co. trademark, & "N.Y.N.H. & H."; has light rim flaking at worse, nearly mint. The condition of this piece is outstanding, this is A&W's transition model from the tall globe Reliable to short globe lanterns. Not very successful due to a design flaw of the globe having a wider top opening than the bottom. Railroaders were used to having globes with a wider bottom and inverted the globes in the lantern. Having the word "TOP" embossed near the correct rim did not help as countless globes were broken. Not many were produced and globes are tough to come by. Cast globes are rare and cast globes of color....well nearly impossible to find. No dents or dings, light suface rust in a couple spots, and no pitting. Comes complete with correct burner and fount.
