New Jersey Central Railroad Lines Brass Top Bell Bottom Lantern CRR clear globe. Condition is "Used". Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
This is a super rare Central Railroad of New Jersey railroad lantern, brass top bell bottom. I am not an expert on this type of lantern however I paid a good buck for this.
The lantern itself is in good condition. I myself have never fired it. There are small pinholes to rim of burner font and to base. Its not riddled with them, but there are 2 on each that i can see. There is some swirly deal with the brass on top. I don't know if thats the design or dents. I have no idea.
Normal surface rust here and there but nothing major. Globe is marked CRR which i was told is original. Only minor flea bites to top and bottom and minor bubble imperfections in glass.
It is a R R Signal & Lamp Co. lantern stamped in the brass. Embossed CRR OF NJ on top rim. No wick included but adjusting knob turns freely.
Opening thumb latch works well and handle isn't bent. Truly is a beautiful piece if you can excuse the minor imperfections.
If anyone has any further inquiries you can reach out to me at any time
