This great find is an old lantern marked on the glass globe AND metal top K.C.S.R.Y.!! I do not know much about how a lantern is supposed to work, and don't take them apart, but will describe the best I can. It is almost 10" tall not including carrying handle, looks all original in good condition, besides railroad name, top metal piece says The Adams & Westlake Co. Besides the etched railroad name in the glass, globe also has raised lettering Adlake Kero. Bottom has raised lettering Adlake-Kero 2-39, U.S.A. 4 patent numbers, last one is 1660194, Canada 1021-1923, Pats. Pending. T are two very slight dents on the very top of the lanter, otherwise I see no damage, also globe looks more green than picture shows, but is still a blueish color. This would make a fine addition to any railroad collection!
