This is a Canadian National Railroad, (CNR) Conductor's Lantern. From the HIRAM L. PIPER CO. LTD. (Canadian division of Adlake Co.) with an amber globe.
It has "C N R" and Hiram L. Piper Co. Ltd. stamped into the top. On the bottom it is stamped Adlake -Kero 3-48, US - Canada 1922-1923.
It has been fitted with an electric socket, an Edison light bulb and a antique style twisted electrical cord. So now with a turn of the switch you see a nice warm red glow.
Please note: No attempt has been made to make this piece new. I like to keep old pieces with age and history, clean and showing their age.
It stands 9 1/2" tall and 6" wide.
